Matt Damon is taking his mission to bring fresh water to developing nations to yet another level.

The 38-year-old actor announced that he’s joining forces with with Gary White, WaterPartners executive director and co-founder, to launch a new charity called Water.org. (How much do you think that domain cost?) The new site will will leverage grassroots awareness-building expertise and nearly two decades of demonstrated innovation and success in the sector to help the nearly 890 million people without safe water and the more than 2.5 billion people without safe sanitation.

“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, “As a clear leader in the sector at delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for those in need, WaterPartners was the natural choice with whom to work to truly affect lasting change.”
