Water in Zimbabwe – celebrating your thirst for change

22 March 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.

Donations were again doubled during Lent 2018 

Your incredible donations helped fund water projects in 15 countries across Africa and Asia.

What your donations helped achieve

From 2012 to 2017, your doubled donations helped to:

  • bring drinking water to 400,000 people
  • provide toilets for 166,000 people
  • train 174,000 people on good hygiene like handwashing.

Donate to the 2018 Lent Appeal

A huge thank you to CAFOD supporters and the UK Government for bringing water to communities like Beauty's. Your gifts will change lives around the world. And if you donated between 13 February and 12 May 2018, the UK Government will double your donation!
