I heard that DIGDEEP’s access projects sometimes serve criminals and prisoners. Is this true?

Every person has a human right to the water we all require to live in dignity. This includes the poorest and most marginalized – even criminals. The right to water for the incarcerated is recognized in the UN Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners, just as similar documents protect water access for women (CEDAW), children (CRC) and prisoners of war (Geneva). DIGDEEP is proud to fund access projects that serve this often overlooked community.
