GlobalCitizen.org describes the event's international reach, "In front of a crowd of 50,000 Global Citizens, 15 world leaders like World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, with heads of state like, Narendra Modi - Prime Minister of India and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf - Prime Minister of Liberia, and over 30 celebrities, we joined together to take action and make commitments that will make a significant difference to the lives of the world’s poorest people."
President Obama was also there via a video message saying, "You are now part of the global fight to end extreme poverty, and this is a fight we can win."
Today, the impact has already been seen. the World Bank’s Senior Director of Water Global Practice Junaid Ahmad said, "It is with pride today that I announce that the World Bank Group commits to spend 15 billion over the next 5 years to provide safe sanitation and water solutions. And in partnership with the United Nations and organizations like BRAC, WaterAid, Water.org and One Drop reach close to 150 million poor people."
