24 Mar 2015 | UK

Belu Water were celebrating with us on World Water Day this year, as they hit a landmark achievement – raising £1 million in donations for our life-changing work.

Belu, a social enterprise based in the UK, donate 100% of their profits to our projects, supporting the world's poorest communities to access clean water and safe toilets and improve their hygiene practices.

In 2011, Belu pledged to donate £1 million to our work by 2020 – but have hit their target an incredible five years early.

Thanks to their support, and the shops and restaurants up and down the country that stock Belu water, this money will help us transform the lives of over 66,000 people.
