Remembering your loved one

Thank you for choosing to donate in memory of your loved one. Your gift not only honours them, but will provide clean water, decent toilets and improved hygiene to people like Madeleine Ravaonarivo, known as Mamavao, and her grandson Rindra.

Alternatively, you can set up a Lasting Love tribute space to share with others and contribute to collectively.

What is a Lasting Love tribute space?

A Lasting Love tribute space is a permanent online page where friends and family can remember a loved one. Anybody can donate to WaterAid through this space as well as share memories, photographs, words and music. 

By donating or taking part in an event in memory of your loved one, they and you will be creating more special moments for families around the world - the day clean water arrived for the first time will be remembered and celebrated for years to come. What better way to remember someone than by giving the gift of life-changing clean water to those without it?

Many people choose to add their Lasting Love tribute space to an order of service.

WaterAid Remembers

If you would prefer to write an individual dedication in memory of your loved one, we invite you to make a WaterAid Remembers dedication. You can simply add your personal message and a photo.

Making lasting change happen

Your gift could give clean water to another child, like Rindra from Madagascar. It can help another grandparent like Mamavao turn on a tap knowing that their grandchildren will never face the struggles they did to collect water. Your gift will mean future generations will grow up healthier and have more opportunities to thrive and fulfil their potential. This is an incredible way to remember your loved one.

Funeral services

Creating a Lasting Love Tribute Space can be a way to ensure that friends and family can still come together to share memories of their loved one.

You can also arrange for gifts to be collected through the Tribute Space, which will help bring clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to communities who need it the most.
