Welcome to Water Charity, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping people access clean drinking water and improved sanitation. Water Charity has done about 3,000 water, sanitation and public health projects in 70 countries, benefiting approx. 3 million people so far! With our unique and extremely efficient method of operation, and an exemplary, transparent track record of sustainable, effective projects, you will be hard pressed to find any charity, in any field, that can match our accomplishments. Water Charity is a partner of the National Peace Corps Association.

World Water Crisis

An Incredible Fact:

More people die from lack of clean drinking water than from all forms of violence combined... including war!

(United Nations)

Illness & Disease

Fully half of the hospital beds worldwide are occupied by someone suffering from a water-related illness.  80% of all diseases are waterborne.

(World Health Organization)


Our solution is simple.  We use tried & proven, low-cost, efficient methods to achieve solutions that originate in the community being served.  We start projects immediately, only asking for donations once the project is underway.  Our projects are done quickly & sustainably, with local labor.

As part of Photographers Without Borders, Marc accompanied Water Charity execs to Senegal to document the great
work WC has done, and continues to do there.  This collectible, coffee-table book of amazing portraits is the result.
