Damon has traveled to Ethiopia and India in recent months to view first-hand the impact that clean water has on villages. “Every 15 seconds, a child in the developing world dies from water-related disease. After visiting project sites in Africa and Asia with Gary, I’ve seen the problem and the impact of safe water.” Damon said in a statement to RadarOnline.com.
