When a community gets clean water for the first time, it’s the start of something truly life-changing.
Right now, some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people don’t have clean water to drink, decent toilets or hygiene. Without these basics, overcoming poverty is just a dream for children like Lahai.
But when you help us to dig a well or install a tap stand in a community, everything changes.
Today one in nine people are still living without clean water close to home. But your support could help change everything for a community – in a single day.
WaterAid has teams in 34 countries across the world, working with our partners to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene.
And since 1981, we’ve reached 24.9 million people with clean water.
In the last 35 years, we’ve gone from strength to strength to become one of the most respected organisations dealing solely with water, sanitation and hygiene issues.
