Dehydration. Fatigue. Poor classroom performance.

Water can help solve these issues for kids, but Latino kids don’t have access to clean drinking water as often as white kids, and they are more dehydrated.

SaludWater #SaludWaterThat’s why Salud America! created the #SaludWater health campaign!

#SaludWater promotes awareness and grassroots actions to inspire local change to give Latino children more access to drinking water:

“Parents, teachers, and leaders all have roles to play to help boost access to safe drinking water for Latino children in our schools and communities,” said Dr. Amelie G. Ramirez, director of Salud America!, a national network supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and based at UT Health San Antonio that promotes healthy grassroots changes to benefit Latino families.

The #SaludWater campaign ran from July 25 to Aug. 18, 2017.

“We hope #SaludWater shows people that Latino kids need access to water throughout their day, and how to help make it happen” Ramirez said.
