2022 CSR Campaign
We are pleased to announce our partnership with surge on World Water Day 2022 for the 3rd consecutive year. We plan to celebrate water and raise awareness of 2 billion people living without access to safe water, hygiene education, and sanitary infrastructure.
We have been partnering with surge since 2020 to support at-risk communities. This year as part of our CSR initiative, we will continue giving our support to Surge’s Safe Water and sanitation programs.
As a result of our joint initiative last year, we successfully provided hygiene education and sanitary infrastructure to 2,003 people across 43 communities in Haiti and Uganda. Our efforts empowered these communities and prevented potential water and hygiene related diseases.
Globally, more than 1.7 billion people lack access to a toilet, 46% of the world population do not have access to safely managed sanitation, and 1 in 10 people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water.
This is a direct contributor to the hospitalization of over 220 million people who contracted diseases from contaminated water sources and the death of nearly 1 million people each year from easily preventable water, sanitation, and hygiene-related diseases.
Together with Surge for Water, we aim to deliver impactful solutions through sustainable designs. The severity of the global water crisis highlights the importance of grassroots, long-term action.
“We’re grateful to all partners for giving back to global communities and for raising awareness of the global water crisis. These partnerships will fund critical work in the field and encourage other supporters to become more involved with Surge’s mission. These companies help reinforce that hand-in-hand; we can create a happier world.”
-Marita Peters, Surge For Water Middle East Executive Director.
As of yet, Surge for Water’s solutions has impacted more than 1,000,000 people in 12 countries. We hope that we can enable the development of these communities by helping them obtain the necessary sanitary infrastructure, hygiene education, and clean water they need.
“We believe in giving back to the community in ways designed to create a positive impact and real change for those who need it the most,” MVP Director Jurgen E. Herre states when asked about the reason behind their company’s participation.
“We must all recognize the multifold value of water and take action to conserve this basic resource, that is not only essential to life, but also vital for creating jobs and supporting economic, social, and human development,” Jurgen adds.
