Clean water is a basic human right, but the hard reality is that 319 million people in sub-saharan Africa don’t have access to safe water. Water related diseases are responsible for many illnesses and deaths in rural communities. Women and children in Africa are responsible for the collection of water and often walk for up to six hours each day to reach a water source. Their journey through various areas puts them at risk of attack and rape.
JAM is an African founded organisation committed to providing clean potable water to individuals and communities, including water and sanitation training to improve health. In the last 15 years we have drilled over 2 500 water wells. Take action to make a difference this World Water Day, help to provide life sustaining water to those in need.
