Every month nurse Maria in Napacala, Mozambique, delivers over 70 babies, but despite her efforts, using dirty water is the only choice she has. We need your support to change this, because clean water can mean the difference between harm or healing for health workers, for their patients and for us all. Every year over a million mums and newborns die from infections associated with unclean births.

We need water in Napacala. We would like to have water pumps not just here in the health centre but across our community. Water for me is life and without it there’s no life.


Across the world - there is a mother giving birth without clean water every two seconds.  But with your support, we can change this. By donating you are helping mothers uphold their dignity and protect their babies and themselves from infections.

Your donations could help heal whole communities by bringing clean, running water to their clinics, households and community. Keeping everyone safe, it’s a simple, small solution that you can support. Your kind donation will make a massive impact.

Will you donate to help bring safe, clean water to healthcare facilities like Napacala and other communities around the world?

All donations are used to support WaterAid's water, sanitation and hygiene programs, and aren't restricted to this project.
