Latest annual report


27 Aug 2014 | AU

WaterAid’s latest annual report for 2013/14 is now available. 

See how your generous support has helped people around the world gain access to water, sanitation and hygiene education, and changed their lives.

Read about Clara, 63, who lives on her own in Timor-Leste and thanks to you, no longer has to walk a return journey of two hours over rugged terrain to collect water four times a day: “It was very tiring, but I needed to go, I needed to force myself to go. Even if I was very tired I needed to go because no one would help me. I had to go by myself. Even if I couldn’t stand up I had to go…I feel happy now because the water is closer to my home than before.”  

Learn about a school in Papua New Guinea which is benefiting from WaterAid’s work beyond taps and toilets to educational opportunities. The new facilities have enabled the settlement school to register with the Ministry of Education and qualify for government funding. 

The picture on the cover shows Noila, 8, whose village in Timor-Leste now has a water pump. She told us: “Because of hand washing with soap we don’t get diseases like coughing and pain in our stomachs.”
