Safe water for a family of ten

£30.00

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, digging wells and installing water pumps, taps and toilets so people have the water they need and can protect themselves against deadly disease. Gifts like this one make it all happen. And it doesn’t stop there. Because if people spend less time fetching water, they’ll have more time to spend making a living, and beating poverty for good. Zambia is just one country where Oxfam is getting the water – and hope – flowing, drilling boreholes, installing handpumps, building toilets and promoting good hygiene.



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

This gift in action

Safe water for a family of ten

For years, Pumulo’s village in Zambia didn’t have a supply of clean water. She and her children spent nearly five hours a day fetching water from a pond. But thanks to people like you, Oxfam helped her community install a water pump, and it’s a different story today. Before the pump was installed, Pumulo’s family often became ill. But now that the community has clean, safe water, they’re healthier and can focus on earning a living – and leaving poverty behind. “The water is clear and free from diseases. Since we’ve had it, no one has fallen sick.”
