AT ONLY WATER EVERY CARTON OF WATER COUNTS
ONLY WATER EARMARKS A PERCENTAGE OF CARTON WATER SALES TO WELLS WITHOUT BORDERS
Africa Day” was celebrated on 25 May.
This day was decreed by the Congress of African States, with the aim of raising awareness of the needs that all the countries of the African continent continue to face.
In spite of all the progress we are making little by little, it is necessary to remember some worrying facts that are still present today:
- Under-five mortality remains high in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Four out of every five under-five deaths occur in these regions.
- AIDS is now the leading cause of death among adolescents (aged 10-19) in Africa and the second most common cause of death among adolescents worldwide according to World Health Organisation data.
We cannot change the world, but we can make it better.Only Water
That is why Only Water, together with Wells without Borders, is doing its bit by bringing water to the most inaccessible places in Africa and America.
In this way we have already managed to complete the following projects:
- Implementation of irrigation systems and development of women’s agricultural cooperatives to ensure food sovereignty in rural communities in Houet.
- Construction of improved sources of drinking water and basic sanitation, strengthening community capacities as a guarantee of improved living conditions for the population of Bago.
- Improving the health conditions of the population of Sakoula, Houet, Tchambá, Bilbalogo by guaranteeing access and management of drinking water and basic sanitation infrastructures.
These projects have already changed the lives of more than 145,000 people with an investment of 1,862,858 euros in these regions.
AT ONLY WATER EVERY BOTTLE COUNTS
Only Water donates a percentage of sales from each carton of water to wells without borders.
In 2020 and 2021 we plan to reach a donation of more than 100,000 euros to finance the construction of water wells in different degraded areas of the world.
Our goal for 2021 is to exceed the figure for the following years, which would bring water to the most inaccessible places in Africa and America.
