Will you stand with us and support the Water for Life campaign as we commit to providing people with safe clean water?
Access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is one of the most fundamental basic human rights. However, there are still 844 million people living without clean water and 2.4 billion people without acceptable toilet facilities.
In Africa, many water sources are rivers, ponds or hand-dug holes and they are often shared with animals. The water is regularly contaminated with dirt and waste and hence contains parasites which spread diseases such as cholera and typhoid.
It doesn’t have to be this way! £4/€5/$6 can change lives.
We are passionate about bringing fresh water to communities in East Africa and you can join us and help to change lives.
Clean water changes everything!
Through your support our WASH team can work hard to bring safe, clean water closer to communities, by tapping into groundwater, drilling wells, protecting springs, harvesting rainwater and providing water filters.
In addition to providing sanitation facilities in schools, our WASH team work to improve the health and quality of life of thousands of people in vulnerable communities through the provision of a safe water supply, promotion of appropriate hygiene practices and the use of sanitation facilities.
Access to a safe water source will:
- Reduce the number of water related illnesses and ultimately deaths;
- Reduce the risk of attack on young girls who have to fetch water alone;
- Reduce the number of hours spent collecting water and therefore allow children to attend school and gain a quality education.
