Safe water for a family of four

£10.00

Product description

For families facing drought, or living in areas far from the nearest water supply, providing clean, safe water is life-saving. That’s why Oxfam works in some of the world’s harshest environments, working with communities to dig wells and install water pumps, taps and toilets, so people can stay healthy and well. Gifts like this one make it all happen. Where Daw Ah Nu lives in Myanmar, clean water can be hard to come by. People often have no choice but to drink dirty water and get sick. But thanks to people like you, that problem is now in the past for Daw Ah Nu’s family.




This gift supports our Water for All (WA) projects.

This gift in action

Safe water for a family of four

Daw Ah Nu lives with her family in a village in Myanmar, where drinking dirty pond water used to be their only option. It was dangerous and people were often sick. Thankfully, Daw Ah Nu’s family benefitted from a water filter that makes the water safe to drink – Oxfam also installed a floating jetty, to make it easier and safer to collect. In communities like Daw Ah Nu’s, we’ve also given training on how to prevent nasty diseases from spreading, something that many people haven’t had the opportunity to learn. “Before, I didn’t know about hygiene and safe water. I know much more and we are healthier.”
