Diarrhea claims the lives of nearly 6000 children a day. These children are dying because they do not have access to adequate sanitation or safe water. Their deaths, from common diseases, are preventable. Where there is nowhere safe and clean to go to the toilet, people are exposed to disease, lack of privacy, and indignity. Furthermore, bad health caused by poor sanitation adversely affects the family economy and nutrition.
Your donation will allow WaterAid to help communities to build a latrine, somewhere safe and clean to go to the toilet. Improving sanitation not only improves health, but also people's dignity and livelihoods.
