The World Economic Forum counts the world water crisis as one of top 5 global risks, ranking higher than 27 other risks in terms of likelihood and impact. Why is this so important? Because access to clean water is consistently at the root of other global risks like conflict and migration – which affects us ALL.
Veterans Without Orders is uniquely-qualified to solve clean water issues
As former Civil Affairs (CA) officers, our veteran volunteers have been trained by the branch of the military responsible for conducting foreign humanitarian aid operations. In the aftermath of war and natural disasters, CA teams coordinate with local aid organizations, provide direct aid to civilians, and help restore infrastructure by building roads, schools, medical facilities, sewer lines, etc.
Our volunteers have seen first-hand the devastating effects of the water crisis, and we’ve spent our careers developing solutions for these regions. As veterans, our goal is to serve as the “tip of the spear” for combatting the water crisis. We do this through on-the-ground distribution of clean water filters, training, and follow-up support to communities across the globe.
When it comes to creating A MORE peaceful WORLD, CLEAN water should be seen as THE FOUNDATION
