Save thirsty children.
Can you believe this? Everyday, some 6000 children die of thirst.
And when they get water to drink, they die of water borne diseases. Isn't that heart breaking?
And what are we doing to remedy this dire situation? Which charity organization is taking action?
It is reported that UNICEF is running a program called 'Tap Project'. It seems several restaurants are participating in this project. I am sorry I don't have details.
I only know that every person who goes to those restaurants are asked to pay $1 for water which they otherwise get it free of cost.
This $1 will take care of a child's 40 days clean and hygienic water requirement.
For more details..
