Clean, safe water is essential for a healthy life, but more than two billion people lack safe water at home. This gift helps people access life-giving clean water and reduce preventable diseases.
How your gift helps
Ongoing poverty can force people to use unsafe, contaminated or distant water sources. Tearfund’s partners work with communities to help them access clean water.
In this remote village in Nepal, Tearfund’s partner Share and Care has worked with the community to repair an old, damaged drinking water system so that all villagers have year-round access to water. One villager says: “Before, we had a scarcity of drinking water. It was hard to manage our animals, our cooking and our hygiene – now it is so much easier.” Another says: “Women had to walk to the water source before, so they would have difficulty managing their time. Now, rather than spending so much time carrying water for their households and animals, they have time for other productive activities.”
This Useful Gift celebrates a real story of transformation that represents the water and sanitation work of Tearfund’s partners around the world. By purchasing this gift you’ll make a valuable contribution to this work.
