Father, Imam, Farmer.

Qari Muhammad from Pakistan knows the impact of good sanitation and hygiene. Before WaterAid came to his community, Qari Muhammad's village was in a very bad condition: "early in the morning when I used to go to the fields, I used to see human faeces lying everywhere. People had no choice but to defecate in the fields."

A kind man, Qari Muhammad did not hesitate when WaterAid needed land to install a sewage treatment unit to bring good sanitation and hygiene to his community; "I realised the importance of this project and donated my land for it. I thought that it will be a great welfare work for the entire village, and everybody will benefit from it."

Because of his generous deed, Qari Muhammad's community has been transformed. A farmer himself, he's also benefited from receiving usable water for his crops.

When we work together, big change happens. Right now, 785 million people don’t have clean water close to home. But you can help change this.

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*
