Rocketeer Charity: Water Is Basic

Water Is Basic, an organization that empowers South Sudan in their fight for clean water, was drawn during our latest employee charity drawing. Water is Basic is a non-profit organization dedicated to putting clean, safe drinking water within reach of everyone in the Republic of South Sudan. Clean and safe drinking water is something many of us in more developed countries take for granted. Just one flush of a toilet in the west uses more water than most Africans have to perform an entire day’s washing, cleaning, cooking and drinking.

Rocketeer Matthew Watters submitted the organization for the drawing. His interest in Water is Basic "stems from the fact that it is an effort that employs local South Sudanese, and only installs a well in an area when there has been demonstrated community organizing, financing, and commitment to maintaining the well".

Water Is Basic is set up as a sustainable solution to the South Sudanese water problems. It has saved lives and will continue saving lives for many years to come. For more information about this organization, or to find out how you can help, visit the Water Is Basic website.
