For Hollywood actor Matt Damon, access to clean drinking water and toilets are of paramount importance in maintaining health around the world.

 

Speaking to journalists in Davos, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting, he said: “For me, ensuring that every human being has access to safe water and the dignity of a toilet – two incredibly basic and inextricably linked requirements for survival – is one of the most urgent and pressing causes in the world today.”

Diseases and illnesses as a result of dirty water and absence of sanitation cause losses worth billions of dollars around the world, especially in the emerging markets, say healthcare experts. As an avid campaigner for addressing the global water and sanitation crisis, Damon says: “The good news is that there are solutions that work. I’m convinced that we can overcome the global water crisis in our lifetime.”

Matt Damon is also the co-founder of Water.org – an organisation with a mission to ensure that everyone in the world has access to safe water and basic sanitation.

The actor’s achievements were recognised by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship as he was among the recipients of 2014 Crystal Awards, which honour artists who use their “creativity to push the limits and find new ways of living in professional and personal lives”.
