Last spring, IfOnly donated a sizable sum to Charity Water — and we have wonderful news to report. Our funds have been sent to Bangladesh. A country the size of Iowa with a population of over 150 million, Bangladesh is one of the most densely inhabited areas in the world. Because 16% of the population lacks access to water and 42% lacks access to sanitation, it has gotten the attention of Charity Water, whose mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
When we checked in with Charity Water, we learned our donation will be used to provide clean water access to two schools for 500 children. We also received a video documenting their status, which we are happy to share with you. Building and partnering with the local community will take some time (approximately 18 months), so stay tuned for more updates coming soon.
