Potable water and sanitation

Clean DRINKWATER and PROPER SANITATION are essential to public health and for the prevention of diseases and epidemics. Only one in every two people in the world will have access to some form of sanitation. Drinking water is a prerequisite for human survival, but water also means so much more: it can provide better personal hygiene, encourage the growth of healthy food and enable cooking, cleaning, washing and dishwashing.

Proper sanitation encourages people to be aware of the importance of good hygiene. Excrement, rubbish and standing water (a breeding ground for many insects) need to be separated and removed to avoid the transmission of diseases. No more open sewers!

With our project WATER FOR LIFE, we have worked to realise the United Nations' (UN's) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). The aim is to achieve these goals, and in turn to bring an end to poverty, hunger, disease (e.g. AIDS, Malaria), maternal and child mortality, inequality and environmental problems.

In addition, we endorse the objectives of the Flemish Water Partnership for Development (VPWvO). The VPWvO aims to halve the number of people without access to clean water. Worldwide, there are 1.5 billion people who live without clean drinking water. If each individual from the most affluent countries helped just one other person to access clean water, then the global Sustainable Development Goals could be achieved. We are working to achieve these goals. Are you able to support us?
