The water you see him drinking is filthy and makes him dangerously ill. He has no choice but to drink it, even though every sip could kill him. Just like it kills almost 800 children every day. This has to change.
By donating to WaterAid, you can help us create more futures for children like Cynthia (pictured right)
Before last year, six-year-old Cynthia and her classmates at her school had no choice but to drink dirty water. Disease was rife and pupils would often get sick, missing vital lessons. Thanks to their new water points, Cynthia and her friends can focus on their school work – and Cynthia can work towards her dream of becoming a teacher.
With the support of people like you, we can bring clean water to everyone everywhere.
Our mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.
When a community gets access to the safe water and sanitation they desperately need, their:
health improves, and fewer lives are lost
time is freed up to do other important tasks, like harvesting food, or caring for children
children have the chance to go to school and play
