SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD) marks World Water Day by challenging individuals to use only one gallon of water today. This year's theme encourages valuing water through conservation. With 2.2 billion people worldwide lacking access to safe drinking water, HHRD desires to foster change in daily water consumption.
In 2020, over half a million lives were impacted by HHRD's water projects. HHRD's Water for Life (WFL) program helps people gain access to clean water for daily consumption and irrigation purposes through construction and rehabilitation of water supply schemes.
Through the conservation of water lives can be saved. HHRD's international offices in Pakistan, Jordan, Kenya and more will commemorate World Water Day through activities such as educational workshops, walks for water, tree planting and much more. HHRD's challenge encourages participants to take shorter showers, insulate water pipes, recycle used water, wash full loads of laundry and dishes, and more.
Over half of the global population or 4.2 billion people lack safe sanitation. To combat this HHRD's Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) program distributes soaps and hygiene kits, provides clean water, and delivers restrooms for those who lack access to these opportunities.
The value of water is undermined in areas where there is easy access. HHRD aims to raise awareness of the importance of water through service, education, and the implantation of 1,000 water projects in 2021.
