Annual Report and Accounts 2018

We set up a sustainable water supply for 700,000 people affected by conflict in DR Congo and rebuilt earthquake-hit water systems for 35,000 people in Nepal.

We got 42,000 people to support our tax campaign and persuade parliament to pass legislation to help end the secrecy which fuels corporate tax avoidance and deprives poor countries of vital funds.
