megree and WaterAid have partnered to raise awareness of the global water and sanitation crisis. Join us in helping improve access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities by telling us of your connection to someone living without water or sanitation or by simply selecting WaterAid as one of your causes on your My Causes page.
Clean, safe water is something most of us take for granted, but nearly 900 million people do not have access to it and 2.5 billion have nowhere safe and clean to go to the toilet.
As a result, 4,000 children die every day from easily prevented diarrheal diseases.
WaterAid is an international non-profit organization that focuses exclusively on helping the world's poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.
We work with local partners, who understand local issues, and provide them with the skills and support to help communities set up and manage practical and sustainable projects that meet their real needs.
We also work locally and internationally to change policy and practice and ensure that water, hygiene and sanitation's vital role in reducing poverty is recognized.
