Water saves lives challenge… will you help?
As we approach Ramadan 2017 we have a challenge but we need your help to achieve it.
783 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. 6 to 8 million people die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related diseases.
But you can help us change that! Our challenge is to install 5 handpumps every single day in the run up to Ramadan – and with just 52 days to go that’s 260 handpumps! Think about how many families and communities that will help – children will be able to attend school more regularly as their health improves, women won’t have to walk miles to collect water for the family home, instead they can spend more time with their children and they will be able to go out to work.
So do you accept the challenge? Help us achieve over 200 handpumps before Ramadan.
