Safe water for a community

WAS £50.00 £40.00

Product description

This charity gift card makes sure communities have the water they need and protect themselves against deadly disease.

Oxfam works in some of the world's harshest environments, digging wells and installing water pumps, taps and innovative water meters for families facing drought, or living in areas far from the nearest water supply. Providing clean, safe water is life-saving.  

And it doesn’t stop there. If people spend less time fetching water, they’ll have more time to spend making a living, and beating poverty for good. It all starts with gifts like this one.

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

This gift in action

Safe water for a community

Hadado Town in northern Kenya faced a drought so devastating that they hadn’t seen rains in almost a year. People had to walk for miles to find water, but now Ibadha manages an innovative ‘water ATM’ that’s a lifeline for the community. Ibadha’s job as a water kiosk attendant used to be extremely stressful. The scarcity of water led to long queues of thirsty people and tensions would run high. But thanks to people like you, things are changing. Using the contactless technology found in debit cards, Oxfam has set up a new ‘water ATM’. The ATM is directly connected to a borehole, providing clean, safe water 24/7. It’s made a real difference - for Ibadha and for all the people the ATM serves. “The biggest advantage is that water is delivered to my doorstep. Water is near,” says Ibadha. ”We get a lot of water, just like fish.”
