When mothers like Valeria in Mozambique can give birth at a health centre with a clean water supply and toilets, they can uphold their dignity and keep their babies and themselves safe from infections. But every two seconds a mother still gives birth without clean water. Your support today can bring health and lasting change to more mums like Valeria and their communities.
Before delivery I used hot water, and after delivery I used it to wash myself. It felt good to see the doctor washing his hands with water and soap. I must do the same.
After WaterAid’s project in Valeria’s local health centre, more people living locally now also have a better understanding of their right to clean water and are taking action to claim it. This includes local community groups regularly speaking to local government to get them to address water, sanitation and hygiene issues.
Your gift could help heal whole communities by bringing clean, running water to their clinics, households and community. And you'll know that more mums like Valeria can give their babies a safer start in life. 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 communities around the world?
All donations are used to support WaterAid's water, sanitation and hygiene programs, and aren't restricted to this project.
WaterAid has teams in 29 countries across the world, working with our partners to change millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene.
Since 1981, we’ve reached over 27 million people with clean water. But we can’t stop there.
In the last 41 years, we’ve gone from strength to strength to become one of the most respected organisations dealing solely with water, sanitation and hygiene issues.
What does WaterAid do?
While installing taps and toilets is essential to our work, we do so much more. We convince governments to change laws, link policy makers with people on the ground, pool knowledge and resources and rally support from people and organisations around the world, making lasting change happen on a massive scale.
