complications from lack of clean water kills thousands each day
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Complications from the lack of clean water kills a child every 15 seconds.
On World Water Day today, EDGE OUTREACH, a Louisville non-profit will demonstrate how it's working to provide clean water solutions around the world. World Water Day was established in 1992 by the United Nations to call attention to the international crisis of safe drinking water. In partnership with Louisville Water, the Frazier Museum developed the “Water Works” exhibit to highlight the history of the community’s drinking water. The exhibit provides a backdrop to call attention to a basic human need, safe drinking water.
To help raise awareness and understanding about the importance of clean drinking water around the world, The Frazier will host a free World Water Day celebration event this evening from 6 to 8 p.m. in partnership with Louisville Water Company and EDGE OUTREACH.
“Water Works” visitors are invited to bring pennies, dimes, nickels and quarters to “drop in the bucket.” Donations to the Drop in the Bucket campaign will purchase supplies and equipment for EDGE OUTREACH’s work purifying water in places such as Haiti and India.
