Save lives and transform futures with the gift of clean water
Millions of children walk miles in the blazing heat to collect water that isn’t clean. They’re thirsty, tired and frequently ill. Missing out on school and the chance of a proper childhood.
Children like eight-year-old Ireen who used to collect water from a stream three or four times a day. She would set off early – so as not to be late for school. But the dirty water she drank would often give her diarrhoea and mean she had to miss lessons.
Children like Ireen are vulnerable to diseases like cholera, and now coronavirus too. Their communities desperately need clean water so they can protect themselves.
