Water is a human right. Yet in places such as Detroit, Baltimore, and other cities in the United States, families unable to afford their water bills have their water service disconnected. When this happens, kids can't bathe, people can't wash dishes, and grandparents can't flush their toilets. The Human Utility provides assistance to families and makes sure they always have running water at home.

Please read this and donate with me if you can. This is freaking appalling, among so many appalling things.
Okay next up, I’m going to up my monthly donation to @humanutility which means I’m supporting the work of @tiffani . Anyone want to join me by either upping their monthly donation or making a one time donation to support her work? https://t.co/yLZ4WEdKBX— Qiana P. (@Q_i_a_n_a) October 26, 2019
