We've been working with a wide range of supporters, trusts and foundations for over 35 years. Here are a few words from some of them about their experiences working with us.

My experience with WaterAid is so rewarding, I know that my support goes to exactly where it is needed.

"I've been supporting WaterAid for a number of years now and it’s incredibly close to my heart. I recently visited the project I support in Nepal; what really struck me was the pride and sense of achievement of the people and how WaterAid is a catalyst for change.

"WaterAid’s activities are simple, effective and designed to really work from the grass roots up. I encourage you to support this worthwhile cause. My experience with WaterAid is so rewarding, I know that my support goes to exactly where it is needed."

Neil Armstrong, Chairman and CEO of Fastflow

We are looking forward to continuing to develop our relationship with WaterAid in the future.

"The Waterloo Foundation has been privileged to visit WaterAid’s programmes in Malawi and Nepal, where we have seen first hand the transformative impact they have on the lives of substantial numbers of disadvantaged people. We remain convinced about the quality of the programmes which WaterAid deliver with their in-country partners.

"We have enjoyed working with WaterAid and have learnt a great deal from them. We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with WaterAid in the coming years."
