#ShareTheStrength – Neverthirst
After an overwhelming positive response to our Remote Personal Training Program we feel led to pay it forward! We are excited to announce our Share The Strength campaign! Each month we will be highlighting a different organization and donating 20% of our proceeds to them from that month!
First up is Neverthirst for December 2015! Never thirst is a international non profit Christian organization dedicated to bringing clean and living water to the poor. From their website:
“MORE THAN 3.4 MILLION PEOPLE DIE EACH YEAR FROM WATER, SANITATION, AND HYGIENE-RELATED CAUSES. NEARLY ALL DEATHS, 99 PERCENT, OCCUR IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD.
It’s amazing to think that today, in a world of iPhones, space travel, and unprecedented wealth in America that there are still over 663 million people who do not have access to a safe source of drinking water .
The implications of this are massive. Shockingly, diarrhea kills 2,195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.
Let’s not also forget the school days lost each year due to illness and children leaving school to collect water and the time lost by mothers walking great distances everyday just to collect water. In Africa alone, women spend a whopping 40 billion hours per year just to collect water.
At Neverthirst we believe water is essential for life. We also recognize that water is just one part of the solution in improving health. In the countries where we work our partners also teach the importance of safe water treatment; good hygiene and training in the value of good sanitation.
We focus on clean water as a means of reducing the burden of collecting water and as a contributor to reducing risk of disease.
From our small beginnings in 2008 together with our amazing supporters and our local partners we’ve been able to provide 300,000 people with a safe water source. But we think the fact that 663 million people around the world living without safe water means we still have a long way to go!”
