Part of Overseas Aid
WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.
Yet shockingly over 884 million people have no access to clean water and 2.5 billion people have nowhere safe to go to the toilet. Diarrhoea, caused by lack of clean water and sanitation, is the second biggest killer of children worldwide. By helping schools build proper latrines and teaching good hygiene practices, you are saving lives and ensuring children don’t miss out on an education. The path out of poverty begins with clean water and sanitation.
By choosing to make a regular gift today, you will help some of the millions of people without clean water and sanitation. Just £15 is enough to pay for a lasting supply of safe water, sanitation and improved hygiene, £10 could pay for a toolkit to maintain a village water point or £4 could pay for a bag of cement to build latrines.
Watch our film to find out more – your regular gift could help change the lives of millions of people, starting today. Thank you!
