Water = Life
Clean drinking water reduces disease and helps prevent blindness.
Lions are involved in a number of projects around the world to provide clean drinking water to millions of people.
For example the Lions of the UK midlands helped build 10 wells in Niger and then refurbish them 10 years later. They have also provided 5 water pumps to Nepal with further pumps on the way.
Water is particularly important after a disaster. When the recent Typhoon hit the Philippines the Lions of the British Isles and Ireland were able to provide 1,100+ Lifesaver water bottles (enough to provide clean drinking water for 10,000 people for a year). The response so far to the more recent earthquake in Nepal has been enough lifesaver jerry cans and water purification tablets to provide 13,000,000 litres of clean water.
