Girl from Ethiopia pours water into a bucket

Water appeal

Children like Seada are dying from dirty water. They urgently need your help.

Thirsty, weak, desperate – children are dying from dirty water.

 For girls like 15-year-old Seada, in rural Ethiopia, collecting water is a tiring, scary, time-consuming struggle.

It could take Seada hours to find and haul the water home each day, which wasn't even safe to drink. She was often late for school and constantly exhausted in class.

Dirty, contaminated water kills. Children like Seada desperately need clean water. With it, they’re healthier, safer and more likely to attend school.
