Water, sanitation and hygiene, known together as WASH, are essential for good health and well-being. Some 783 million people around the world do not have reliable access to clean drinking water, and even more people lack access to water for agriculture and household tasks to meet their everyday needs. Around the world, 2.4 billion people lack adequate sanitation facilities. Global Ministries supports WASH programs worldwide, providing direct help through UMCOR and supporting the work of partners. Programs provide education and increase access to improved water sources. Every U.S. dollar spent on water, sanitation, and hygiene generates U.S. $4.30 in increased productivity and decreased health care costs.
