Actor/activist Damon and engineer White reveal the shocking reality that the lack of clean drinking water affects nearly 700 million people worldwide and suggest several plans to end the water crisis in this audiobook.

They provide inspiring insight into the founding of, which empowers others to gain access to safe water and sanitation to improve their health, empower women, enable access to education, and increase family income. Both authors effuse sincerity when sharing data, compassion when telling of successes, and passion when describing the history of this project. While White is solid, Damon is an especially charismatic reader, transcending the wall of performance and touching listeners’ hearts, as they hear the smile in his voice during poignant moments such as the African girl who tells Damon she wants to move to the large city instead of staying in her village.
VERDICT A sensitive call to action for a very worthy cause: working to get clean water and sanitation for the poorest populations on our planet.
