As India faces another deadly wave of COVID-19, we're urgently scaling up work to bring clean water, toilets and hygiene facilities to people who need it the most.
With cases rising every day, many people are fleeing cities to seek safety in rural areas, causing the virus to spread even further. This threatens to overburden already stretched local health centres, with weak infrastructures, to manage such a crisis.
Your support is vital in helping protect the thousands of lives already at stake.
Through your donation, you'll help to do the following across India:
- Support emergency work to rapidly repair existing infrastructure and install new temporary facilities, such as water storage units, handwashing stations and additional mobile toilets in 50 healthcare centres
- Provide emergency water supplies to 12,000 people living in places expected to experience water shortages as the dry season approaches
- Provide safety and hygiene support to 2,000 sanitation workers who are working on the frontline to help slow the spread of COVID-19
As the situation changes by the day, your support could also help us respond to the escalating crisis across South Asia, making an even bigger impact.
Will you donate today to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in South Asia?
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.
