Essential to life
When a crisis hits, IRC emergency teams are there, supplying families with clean water and other emergency aid. Clean water and proper sanitation reduce the risk of deadly diseases in crowded environments, as in Greece where thousands of refugees from the Middle East may arrive in a single day. In 2014, the IRC gave 3.3 million people access to clean water and sanitation, helping to prevent dehydration and stop the spread of disease. $110 can supply clean water for a year to three people who have been uprooted by crisis.
