SOS clean water has a mission to assist those disadvantaged communities worldwide in obtaining the most basic of human needs:  clean, potable and safe water for drinking, cooking and cleaning.

SOS clean water invites you to put yourself in those poorest remote communities’ shoes. Follow them on their daily journey carrying 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans, digging in sand for water and/or lining up at a well and wait 8 hours for a turn.

SOS Clean Water is bringing help to those remote disadvantaged communities to access to safe, clean and potable drinking water by digging freshwater wells, building rainwater catchments through Funds raised and corporate support. Fund raising can help, but little will be achieved unless a greater effort is made to ensure that services reach those who need them most.

In 2008, 8.8 million children born alive across the world died before their fifth birthday. Most of these children lived in developing countries and died from a disease or a combination of diseases that could easily have been prevented or treated – antibiotics for pneumonia, for example, or a simple mix of water, salt and sugar for diarrhea. Under nutrition contributes to over a third of these deaths.

Child mortality is closely linked to poverty. Advances in infant and child survival have come more slowly in poor countries and to the poorest people in wealthier countries. Improvements in public health services are essential, including safe water and better sanitation. Education, especially for girls and mothers, will also save children's lives. Raising income can help, but little will be achieved unless a greater effort is made to ensure that services reach those who need them most.
