Grant brings clean water to thousands in Ghana

Investing in clean water could save 2.5 million lives a year. We can't afford not to protect the world's water supply. Take action with Rotary to create access to clean water.

Worldwide, more than 748 million people live without access to clean water and at least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water. Rotary is working to change that. For example, members used a Rotary grant to drill more than 20 clean-water wells and to repair another 30 in villages across Ghana. The project also included education about and treatment of Buruli ulcer, a debilitating infection that if untreated can lead to disability and death. Nearly 70,000 people will benefit from this initiative.

As it is impossible to over estimate the value of clean water, I would like to have more information.

1.  Is this water well project available in all/other under developed countries?

2.  If yes, what countries?

3.  Does Rotary partner with other groups in this project.

4. Does Rotary have any programs going in El Salvador?

Thank you
