This is my friend . is years old and lives near me in Tombohuaun.

In many ways, is a lot like you. enjoys too.

But there’s one thing that’s really different about life. Can I tell you what?

Ok, . and many of us here in Tombohuaun get sick because we have to drink dirty water.

Lots of families have lost children. Not long ago, five-year-old Beindu died from a waterborne illness.

With access to clean water, children everywhere will be healthier and happier - and can grow up to be whatever they want.

- - now you understand why there is a need for clean water. Will you give a $5 gift today to help stop dirty water taking children’s lives?
