Thank you for supporting the Harvest Appeal

Give the gift of clean water

Fundraise with your community this harvest to bring clean water to those who still live without this basic human right. Your gifts will help communities around the world protect their harvests and live healthier, happier lives.

Now more than ever it’s vital the world’s poorest communities have access to clean water. Without it they cannot wash their hands to protect themselves from illness and many struggle to grow food they rely on to survive.

In Timor Leste, a country that suffers very long dry seasons, lots of families farm for a living - but without a constant supply of clean water often their livestock die and crops fail. At a time when communities around the world are celebrating the bountiful gifts of harvest, many can’t grow enough to feed their families.

Fundraising inspiration

Although your group may not be able to meet physically this harvest, there are still plenty of ways you can join together to celebrate and fundraise.

Harvest supper

Host a harvest supper with your group, or hold a virtual cook-along, making traditional recipes from Timor Leste. You'll find some in the harvest pack.

Hold a quiz

Pit your wits against each other in a WaterAid quiz – you’ll find a quiz sheet in your pack. It’s something you can organise online too, over Zoom or Skype.


Organise a harvest collection in support of WaterAid. There are lots of ways you can do it online: set up a JustGiving page and send the link to members of your group.

Request a free fundraising pack for even more ideas and useful tools to help you fundraise, as well as learn about the life-changing effects your gift will have on communities around the world.
