Jordan is one of the driest countries in the world, and its aging water system leaks millions of gallons every year. Getting clean water to the people of Jordan has been a struggle for years, but the huge influx of Syrian refugees has strained the country's resources even more.

Change within communities starts with clean water. It is the foundation of life — and when families have enough, they stay healthy, have more time for work and school, and communities experience less conflict. That's why we're working in Jordan to rehabilitate the country's aging water infrastructure to serve more people.

When pipes are fixed, leaks are plugged and better infrastructure is built, more families have access to a clean and safe water supply. See how our project is making a difference in the video above.
