We bring emergency water, sanitation facilities and hygiene kits to those who need it most when disaster strikes. Over the last decade, we’re proud to have responded with:
- Improving water access and sanitation facilities in refugee camps in East Africa and Bangladesh
- Providing emergency water to assist hospitals and clinics treating patients when the Ebola epidemic spread in Sierra Leone and Liberia
- Repairing city water systems in countries of conflict such as Yemen
- Repairing water pipes, pumps and reservoirs that were badly damaged by Hurricane Irma in the Dominican Republic
- Providing hygiene kits to families in the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake and more recently in Guatemala
In early 2019, 920,000 people in Malawi were affected by Cyclone Idai, which caused widespread devastation and major flooding. Water & sanitation infrastructure was been destroyed in many areas, bringing a heightened risk of waterborne diseases.
In response to this disaster, we funded emergency relief in the Nsanje district of Malawi- supporting the Bangula camp, which hosted over 5,000 people affected by the flooding. The funding included the installation of clean water points, emergency latrines, hand-washing stations and sheltered washing units.
