Water in Zimbabwe – celebrating your thirst for change

15 February 2018

We’re celebrating the progress made on bringing water to homes and farms around the world. Watch Beauty from Zimbabwe talk about the difference your donations have made to her life. 

In 2012, thousands of you came together in solidarity with people who are living without enough water. You raised a staggering £9.3 million, which was matched by the UK Government.

These incredible donations funded water projects in 15 countries across Africa and Asia.

You helped to:

  • bring drinking water to 400,000 people

  • provide toilets for 166,000 people
  • train 174,000 people on good hygiene like handwashing.

Donations are again worth double this Lent

A huge thank you to CAFOD supporters and the UK Government for bringing water to communities like Beauty's.
