Water SIG water supply charity appeal

charity:water logo

IChemE’s WaterSIG is 30 years old this year, and as part of our celebrations we want to help those who are most in need of clean water around the world.

Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

We want to raise £7,500 together to fund a BioSand Filter project in Cambodia. There’s lots of water in Cambodia, but it isn’t safe to drink. Clear Cambodia provides BioSand Filters to schools and communities in need of clean water.

If we don't hit our target, charity: water will use the funds for the country of greatest need. No matter what, 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects, and when they’re complete, charity: water will report back on the program we funded.

We would love you to contribute! - for more information and to donate, please follow the link>>
