Safe Water

Safe Water



Clean water isn’t always within reach. Many communities facing poverty rely on unsafe, contaminated or distant water sources. This gift helps people access life-giving clean water and reduce preventable diseases.

How your gift helps

Previously, community members in this rural region of Pakistan had to walk 10km to collect water. But with the help of Tearfund’s Christian partner Diocese of Hyderabad, the village built a water tank, giving them an easily accessible source of water close to home. They’ve learnt to treat the water so it’s safe to drink, and families have been equipped to build their own latrines and hand washing stations. With less sickness as a result of improved water and hygiene, families are also spending less on medical fees. Through working together, they now enjoy life-giving water and a healthier, cleaner community!
