Matt Damon Launches Safe Water Organization

H2O Africa co-founder Matt Damon just launched a new organization focused on bringing access to safe water and sanitation to the developing world — Water.org.

The 38-year-old actor formed the non-profit organization with Gary White, WaterPartners executive director and co-founder.

Matt explains the importance of launching Water.org, saying, “Every 15 seconds, a child in the developing world dies from water-related disease. After visiting project sites in Africa and Asia with Gary, I’ve seen the problem and the impact of safe water. As a clear leader in the sector at delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for those in need, WaterPartners was the natural choice with whom to work to truly affect lasting change.”
