Every 90 seconds, a child under the age of 5 will lose their life due to a lack of access to clean water and sanitation.
Matt Damon, co-founder of Water.org, recently shared this chilling fact with an intimate audience at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
“It’s a massive issue for men, women and girls. I’ve traveled all around the world interacting with these little girls, and as a father of four girls, it’s deeply affecting,” Matt said emotionally. “These are real human beings and it’s impossible not to see the faces of your own children in the faces of these children.”
“I remember being in Ethiopia and watching these villagers get water out of a hand-dug well, and these children were filling up these plastic bottles to take to school, and when they pulled it out, it literally looked like chocolate milk,” the Oscar winner continued. “You want to slap it out of their hands, because you know they are going to get sick. But the reality is that if they don’t drink the water that day, they are going to die.”
