Cause of the Week: Global Health

Nov. 20 - Nov. 26, 2017

This week our featured cause is clean water and hunger. Water is one of the basics we need to live, but according to a global assessment published in July 2017 by the World Health Organization, some 3 in 10 people worldwide, or 2.1 billion, lack access to safe, readily available water at home. Follow along this week to learn more about this cause. 

Here’s how you can make an impact:

  • $25 provides one person with access to a safe and clean water supply.
  • $85 provides one week of groceries for a four-person family in a metropolitan area.
  • $110 can purchase one dozen chickens for a family. 
  • $500 can erect a spring catchment well to provide clean water to 250 people

Don’t just learn about it, post about it! Do you want to support clean water and hunger? Make clean water and hunger your cause at opm.gov/ShowSomeLoveCFCAnd remember to #ShowSomeLoveCFC!
