Drop by Drop: Water Changes Lives

'No intervention has a greater overall impact upon national development and public health than the provision of safe drinking water and the proper disposal of human waste'. [WHO]

Today, two out of every three people in the world lack access to safe water. Despite the massive scale of this crisis, your incredible generosity is allowing us to launch life-saving projects for communities across the globe every day. From constructing new wells to building water filtration plants, you are providing clean drinking water in a variety of ways.

We take a holistic approach to our projects, making sure people know how to use water sources safely, maintain new wells and keep up good health and hygiene practices. Our worldwide teams carry out water testing and set up local committees to manage water projects after they are completed, ensuring our interventions are sustainable and directly managed by the people we are helping.

This year, you helped us start our biggest project ever, rehabilitating water infrastructure in Aden, Yemen to provide water for life to a staggering 1.7 million people! With your continued support, we are now planning to rehabilitate water infrastructure in Ma'rib, providing clean water to over 1.2 million people, most of whom are families displaced by conflict in Yemen.

Drop by drop, every donation is making a difference to one more person. Clean water reduces the spread of deadly illnesses, puts more children in school, gives more women the opportunity to work, improves agriculture and ultimately revives and transforms an entire community.

Water for Life in Yemen

With your support, we are setting up large-scale sustainable projects to provide safe water for life to families in Yemen. From rehabilitating whole city water networks to installing solar powered wells in IDP camps, your donations to the Yemen Water Fund are having a huge and lasting impact.

Thanks to you, we have already started rehabilitating Aden’s water infrastructure, which will supply safe water to 1.7 million people for life!

Our next target is the water network in Ma’rib, where 1.2 million people can only access safe water every two weeks. In Ma’rib, every £10 donated will provide 30 people with water for life.

By giving regularly to the Yemen Water Fund, you can support our work to provide sustainable solutions to Yemen’s water crisis and help transform lives.
