Give a life-changing donation

Right now, some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people don’t have clean water to drink, decent toilets to use or hygiene to protect themselves. Without these basics, overcoming poverty is just a dream.

But when you help us to dig a well or install a tap stand in a community, you're changing the lives of children like Dina from Mozambique.

All children should spend their childhood playing, learning and growing into their full potential. Instead, too many children around the world are spending their precious time walking long distances to collect dirty water.

Clean water means improved health, a chance to attend school and to dream. This should be normal for everyone.

785 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water close to home.

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

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 by direct debit give us a predictable income so we can commit to helping more people. Plus direct debits mean we pay less in processing fees than for credit card gifts.

Our fundraising promise to you

We’ll use your donations in the best way possible. In every £1 we spent, 76p went on delivering services and making change happen and 24p went on fundraising and governance*
