I don’t know about everybody else but I really love movies and some actors I just find really amazing. One actor I really love to watch on screen is Matt Damon, since he’s so dedicated to his role and seems like an overall nice guy.
Yet, I wonder how many of you know about his mission to promote safe water and sanitation on a global scale.
He, together with, Garry White, engineer and social entrepreneur have co-founded Water.org, where they have been able to assist 5.5 million people to date, with an expected 2.5 million people for 2017.
With “1.8 billion people globally using a source of drinking water that is fecally contaminated” and “2.4 billion people lacking an access to basic sanitation services such as toilets and latrines” (source: United Nations) such an endeavor is definitely needed.
Persons wishing to learn more about Water.org, and even donate to a worthy cause, can visit their website.
