Nurses, cleaners and doctors go above and beyond to treat their patients, but it’s not enough. All that commitment and hard work amounts to nothing when you don’t have something as basic as sinks, taps and clean water. 

It doesn’t matter how much training you have, how many hours you work, how much you care about your patients. When dirty water is the only option you have, every effort to heal risks bringing harm. Health workers need clean water on tap to stay safe and save lives – because Water is Life.

This is where you come in

Clean water

2 Billion people don't have clean water close to home. We work with communities to fix this, to provide lasting solutions so communities can break free from poverty.

Decent toilets

1 in 3 people don't have a reliable toilet of their own. We're working with communities to build a local workforce that can install and maintain toilets.

Good hygiene

Good hygiene and handwashing is one of the most effective ways of improving global health. That's why we have always supported hygiene education.
