Join Neny on a journey for clean water this Lent  

The 40 day journey through Lent can be long and testing.

But for girls like Neny, the arduous journey to collect dirty water every day is a test they shouldn’t have to endure.

This Lent could your church journey alongside girls like Neny and help to end their tiring walks to collect dirty water? By giving something up this Lent and collecting the money you save for WaterAid, your pennies can become life changing clean water for children like Neny all around the world.

It’s easy to get your whole church involved. Simply request your fundraising pack by clicking on the link to the right of this page and we’ll send you a Sunday School activity sheet, poster, fundraising tips and jar sleeves to help your congregation collect their change.

Your church’s support will mean that Neny no longer has to walk 1.5km, three times a day on a busy road and down a dangerous, slippery slope to collect water that makes her ill.

At WaterAid we believe that no one should have to endure arduous journeys like Neny’s. This is why we’re working for a future where everyone everywhere has access to clean, safe water, and support from churches like yours is helping to make this a reality.

Last Lent...

Last Lent churches in the UK raised enough money to drill a borehole in Chibawe village, Zambia.

11-year-old Emeldah used to have to walk miles every day to fetch dirty water. The journey was exhausting for her small body and often made her late for school.

Last year support from churches across the UK meant a borehole could be installed in Emeldah’s community. 

The clean water close to her home means Emeldah has time to go to school, do her homework and is looking forward to a much happier, healthier future.
