Chelsea Clinton visits Myanmar to promote safe drinking water campaign

Chelsea, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, visits a village in Myanmar. Her trip marked the sixth billionth litre of potable water purified under the auspices of the Children's Safe Drinking Water Programme, founded by global consumer goods giant Proctor & Gamble. The programme provides communities without access to clean drinking water with special P&G brand purifying powder. Each packet can filter up to 10 litres of water. Over 71 countries have benefited from the easy-to-use packets, saving an estimated 32,000 lives, according to USAID. Speaking in Yangon on Monday, Clinton said potable water is key to healthy communities. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA CLINTON, SAYING: "I can't wait to come back in a few years and see all the villagers that have clean drinking water and all the kids who will grow up healthy because of it." According to USAID, 2,000 children die every day from illnesses caused by unsafe water around the world.
