This week, the community of Zara, in North Western Ethiopia, received clean, safe water for the first time.
Bitewush Eskezia can't believe the transformation she has just witnessed. It’s the day their lives changed forever. A day that all 592 community members will never forget.

Not only will the new water point bring clean, safe water to community members, but the overflow from the new water point will be used to irrigate farm land further down the hills – helping farmers to grow more food to feed their families.

You make big days happen. Days like this would just not be possible without WaterAid supporters and we can tell you from the bottom of our heart that your support means the world to the people in the communities we help. Donate today to help more communities experience the joy of safe water in 2014.
