For Zafu, Jean and millions of other children just like them, life revolves around collecting water. Water can often only be found in hard to reach places. They risk injury and even attack every day. The water they finally collect is teeming with potentially fatal bacteria. These children will often carry their own body weight in water for miles each day.

Around 2,000 children a day die from dirty water and poor sanitation. A clean water supply would help these children survive.

little as £2 a month, you will help children like Zafu and Jean to escape from the pain of collecting heavy barrels of dirty
