Dadabe is dancing with joy in his heart because of your loved one and you. He never thought he’d see fresh water pouring from a tap in his village in Madagascar. Moments like these can’t happen without you. Thank you.

Dadabe means Grandad in Madagascan. Now more grandchildren and great grandchildren will be born into a world where they won’t have to trek miles for dirty water. We hope you enjoy watching this snippet of one grandad’s happiness.

We are so grateful for your gift in memory of your loved one. Your love and generosity is helping to turn on taps for families across the world. In fact, support like yours means that between 2016 and 2017, we reached over 109 people an hour with clean water. That's an amazing number of people experiencing the same joy as Dadabe. 

Keep in touch

You can see more moments of joy and delight that you’re making possible.
