Water is one of the world's most abundant resources, yet access to clean, usable water sources are limited and costly. Most people in the developed world, where clean water is seemingly unlimited, aren't aware of the water crisis the world is currently undergoing.

Here are some facts to ponder on:



20%
OF THE WORLD IS COVERED IN WATER
BUT ONLY
0.50%
OF IT IS DRINKABLE

Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease.


1 in 30 people
WORLDWIDE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN DRINKING WATER

A five-minute shower uses more water than a person in a developing country uses in a day.


IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, AS MUCH AS
0%
OF ILLNESSES ARE LINKED TO POOR WATER AND SANITATION CONDITIONS


The greatest mistake a fortunate person can make is to take his blessings for granted and assume its perpetuity.


Historically, most of us in the developed world haven't felt the full effects of the global water shortage, yet to assume it to be worlds away from us is to be uneducated and unprepared. According to the World Health Organization, half of the world's population will be living in water-stressed areas by the year 2025.

The purpose of World Water Reserve is to help people understand the gravity of the world's current water crisis and to provide education and resources on how access to clean, sustainable water can be achieved. We review products for personal and communal use, publish stories and helpful articles on water sustainability, and provide directories to organizations with like-minded goals.

Water is an essential resource to human life, making up about 60% of our bodies. Ensuring that we all have access to clean, usable, sustainable water sources is not only critical, but dutiful.
