Matt Damon, H2O Africa co-founder, and Gary White, WaterPartners executive director and co-founder, have come together to launch a new organization- Water.org. Water.org is a non-profit innovative endeavor focused on bringing access to safe water and sanitation to the developing world.
Matt Damon, a long-time advocate for safe water issues, explains the importance of launching Water.org. “Every 15 seconds, a child in the developing world dies from water-related disease. After visiting project sites in Africa and Asia with Gary, I’ve seen the problem and the impact of safe water.” Damon said, “As a clear leader in the sector at delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for those in need, WaterPartners was the natural choice with whom to work to truly affect lasting change.”
Not only is Matt the most adorable actor in Hollywood he is also a passionate humanitarian. Way to go Matt.
