WaterAid and People’s Postcode Lottery

This autumn, WaterAid has received a staggering £2.5 million raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, to support its life-saving water and sanitation projects across Sub-Saharan Africa.

1 Dec 2016

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery are helping to transform lives with safe water and decent toilets.

There are a whole range of amazing prizes on offer (see below) – and best of all, at least £3 from every £10 monthly subscription for draws promoted by WaterAid will go towards our work.

A winning combination

Since 2013, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have helped transform lives across the world by supporting WaterAid. £1.3 million worth of funding from players has already gone towards improving access to clean water and toilets, transforming daily life for people like Rona.

Rona lives in Hamakumo, Zambia, where the village borehole is crucial to the community’s health and their livelihoods.

Not only does it provide safe, clean water to drink, it also enables Rona to grow crops to eat and to sell.

Now that essential resource is protected, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Your support has enabled the people of Hamakumo to set up a water committee, to make sure the borehole keeps running for years to come.
