WaterAid is the #1 international non-governmental organization exclusively focused on clean water, hygiene and sanitation, and there are 785 million reasons we do what we do. That daunting figure is the number of men, women and children who still do not have clean water close to home.
Since our founding in 1981, we’ve already empowered 26.4 million people with clean water. That’s 26.4 million more healthy and independent people in the world. It’s a great start but we have so much more work to do. With your help, we can end the water crisis.
