Changing normal

When you get clean water for the first time, it changes your life in all kinds of ways.

Right now, some of the poorest people in the world don’t have clean water to drink. They don’t have decent toilets or good hygiene. Without these basics, getting out of poverty is just a dream.

But when you help us dig a well, or put up a tap stand, everything changes for children like Lahai.

Today one in nine people still don’t have clean water close to home. But you could help change that – for good.
