Water, Health and Hygiene

Access to clean water and sanitation should be a basic right for everyone. It is a critical foundation for good health and gender equality. Yet one in four people globally are affected by shortages of clean water, and one in three people live without access to a toilet.

You can support organisations that are working in a range of areas; these include educating communities about the importance of hygiene infrastructures. Teaching new mothers about the dangers of preventable water-related diseases to their children. Increasing access to clean water and sanitation in remote areas. Reducing the spread and impact of many diseases across the world. Improving child and maternal health. And promoting physical, social and mental wellbeing.
