It takes 200 million hours to women to get clean water every day all around the world
For each item purchased on LVRSustainable, Luisa Via Roma supports Oxfam by guaranteeing 500 liters of water, enough for a family to drink, wash and cook for a week. In this way, women, who traditionally have the task of taking water in fragile contexts, will have more time for their personal and professional growth, reducing social inequalities that make them more vulnerable to discrimination, abuse and violence.
One in three people in the world today cannot use sources of safe water for drinking or bathing. One in two people, on the other hand, does not have sanitation facilities, with the risk of contracting diseases such as COVID-19, cholera, typhus or dysentery, which in already very poor countries can cause more victims of war. Before the pandemic, water shortages killed around 830,000 people each year, forced to drink and wash with dirty or contaminated water, and led to 800 children under 5 to get sick every day.
“Bringing safe water to those in need”: this is the goal that Oxfam, the humanitarian organization that is dedicated to reducing global poverty through development projects and humanitarian aid – launches together with LVRSUSTAINABLE through the new “GIVE WATER, SUSTAIN WOMEN” campaign on the LUISAVIAROMA website.
