Nearly 2 million children die each year due to unsafe water and inadequate sanitation. On November 16th, at the United Nations, American rap star Jay-Z premiered his new video diary, 'Water For Life', which captures his journey into areas affected by the ongoing global water crisis.
In a partnership with MTV and the UN, Jay-Z toured several developing countries, meeting with young people who do not have access to safe water. He travelled with some of these children along the same roads they take every day to fetch water for their families and schools.
"It is unbelievable that someone so young could be doing that every single day," he said.
