  • Help build a well – so children like Barakot (pictured)* don’t have to drink filthy river water that’s teeming with parasites, bacteria and animal waste.
  • Put taps and pumps in the heart of a community – daily treks to the river with a heavy jerry can are tiring and leave little time for school or work.
  • End the threat of diarrhoeal diseases, which kill almost 900 children every day.

WaterAid is an international charity that works with local partners, decision makers and charities around the world. The way we work is simple and effective, transforming lives by improving access to water, hygiene and sanitation.

In the last 30 years we’ve reached over 17 million people with safe drinking water. Right now, you can help us to reach even more.

Give families access to clean water for life and your kindness will be felt for generations to come.

Dirty water kills a child every minute. We can change this, but not without you.

*Since we visited Barakot, WaterAid has delivered clean, safe water to his community, but millions of children still face the terrible circumstances that he once did.
