(CBS This Morning) Oscar-winner Matt Damon is working to bring clean water to everyone worldwide. In 2009 he co-founded Water.org with longtime water expert and engineer Gary White.

Their goal is to help the more than 660 million people without access to safe water. Damon and White join "CBS This Morning" to discuss their latest initiatives on World Water Day.

About Water.org:
We believe water is the way. To break the cycle of poverty. To protect and save lives. To turn time spent into time saved. To make a bright future possible for all. We are here to break down the barriers between people and access to safe water and sanitation.

We’ve already helped millions. Water is a fundamental human need, yet 663 million people worldwide lack access to safe water. 2.4 billion people worldwide lack access to a toilet. When it takes everyday hours to find and collect water, it's hard to find time for commerce and community. It's hard to get through a full day at school. It's hard to prosper without safe water.

We are Water.org. We're here to bring water and sanitation to the world. We want to make it safe, accessible and cost effective because we believe that water is the way to empowering a better life that we can all share in, worldwide.

We are an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed more than five million lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, we have been pioneering market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis for 25 years, giving women hope, children health and communities a future.

Als u met God praat, heet dat bidden. Praat God met u, dan heet u schizofreen.
