Give a life-changing donation

Our vision is of a world where everyone, everywhere has safe and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene.

We still have a way to go and we need your help.

  • One in 10 people still don’t have even a basic supply of clean water close to home.
  • One in five don’t have a decent toilet.
  • Nearly a third can't wash their hands with soap at home.
  • 800 children die every day as a result.

Right now, millions of people living in some of the lowest-income countries in the world don't have clean water to drink, decent toilets to use or good hygiene to protect themselves. Without these basics, overcoming poverty is just a dream.

But when you help WaterAid dig a well or install a tap in a community, you're making a significant change for the better. Clean water helps people dream again.

We'll keep working until everyone, everywhere has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. But we can’t do it without you.

Will you help change lives today?

How we spend your donation

About WaterAid

WaterAid has teams in 28 countries across the world, working with our partners to transform 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 39 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 do 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.

Why regular donations matter

Regular gifts provide us with sustainable income so we can plan projects and commit to helping more people.
