Access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene is one of the most fundamental basic human rights. 1 in 3 people globally do not have access to safe drinking water (World Health Organisation). You can transform a rural community in East Africa by giving the gift of a safe, clean water source.
When you provide access to a safe water source you help to:
- Reduce the number of water related illnesses and ultimately deaths;
- Reduce the risk of attack on young girls who have to fetch water alone;
- Decrease the number of hours spent collecting water and therefore allow children to attend school and gain a quality education.
