We all need clean water, no matter who or where we are.

And we all need to play our part so that everyone, everywhere can get it.

771 million people don't have clean water close to home.

Women and girls are often the ones expected to walk to find water. We work with local communities so they don’t have to make these long, dangerous journeys.

Every 2 seconds a woman gives birth in a health centre without clean water.

Enala, 19, gave birth without access to clean water. Enala and her baby survived but many don’t. Health clinics with clean water save lives.

1in10 mothers who die, do so due to infections caused by unclean births.

Making sure every health centre across the world has clean water and good hygiene would help protect mothers and their babies.

WaterAid/ Guilhem Alandry

There are lots of ways you can help us reach communities around the world with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

The clean water taps in the village help me be on time for school and the good hygiene keeps us healthy.
