Turn on the tap - water comes out.
Now imagine spending 3 hours a day fetching enough water to live.
We support WaterAid, not just because everyone should have fresh, safe water, but because without it , people are condemned to live in poverty.
WaterAid works with people in 17 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region to improve their quality of life through lasting improvements to water, sanitation and hygiene education using local skills and practical, sustainable technologies.
Can you give the gift of water to help people climb out of poverty?
Over a billion people around the world do not have access to safe, clean water. Women like Cabita in Nepal have to spend their days climbing steep, dangerous paths to collect water for their children which they know isn't safe. Without your help Cabita and her children would have no choice but to drink this water which they know could kill them.
Please make a donation right now to help some of the world's poorest people to start their climb to a better life.
