WaterAid

 

Water is a basic human right, yet 748
million people in the world do not have access to safe water. This is roughly one in ten of the world's population.

 

WaterAid believe in a world where
everyone, everywhere has access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.

By supporting WaterAid we are helping to transform lives in some of the world’s poorest communities.

 

Water is just the start; access to water means communities are healthier, better nourished, better educated, more equal and more productive.

 

“We’re delighted that the Pelargos Foundation are fundraising for WaterAid to transform lives through safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation”
