More than 163 million Indians lack access to safe drinking water. Water is a necessity for sustaining life but if the quality of water is affected, it can be hazardous. 

At WaterAid, we work every day to make clean water accessible for everyone, everywhere. Our on-ground work spreads across the country, reaching far corners and marginalised communities. 

You can play a big role in making our mission a reality.

Let’s give the most essential gift "Access to clean water". Support us to improve million of lives.
