Your donation will mean so much to a mother like Concilia:

  • No more drinking filthy river water, teeming with parasites, bacteria and animal waste
  • An end to the worry of diarrhoea, which kills 2,000 children every day
  • A pump or tap in the heart of the community, rather than a daily trek to the river with a heavy jerry can
Donate to WaterAid's Child of Mine campaign to help raise enough to reach 100,000 kids with safe water.

Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Maybe you’re looking for your water bottle while sweating at the gym? If so, you're not alone.

Millions of kids under five are looking for water too. Their resolution is to survive.

Without safe water and toilets, vulnerable children – our future – don’t have a fighting chance. Every single day, 1,400 children under five die from water-related diseases. It’s so wrong, so unnecessary, and such a tragic waste.

If you want children to live beyond their first years - not just to survive but to thrive - please donate to WaterAid's Child of Mine campaign to help give safe water to 100,000 kids under the age of five. Just $25 could give a child safe water. 

Jacinta from Mozambique, East Africa, lost her daughter Sophonia to a water-related disease a year ago. Sophonia was just two years old. Now, Jacinta has to give the same dirty water that killed Sophonia to her baby son Saladore.

Salvadore never got to meet his big sister. At 11 months old he's just started walking and is busy exploring his surroundings. It should be a magical time, but because of where he lives, it means Salvadore is exposed to disease, bacteria, parasites and dirty water which could kill him.

Don’t make a New Year's resolution, make a today resolution. Be someone who believes in clean water for all. Donate to help bring safe, clean water to children like Salvadore.
