or simply doing what comes naturally.

Millions of people around the world do not have the luxury of choice. Dirty water and inadequate sanitation spreading disease which leads to the early death of over 1,400 children a day.

This is the reality for over 750 million people who live without safe water.

Two and a half billion people don't have access to adequate sanitation, one in three of the world's population.

Over 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.

WaterAid need our support to gather 100,000 signatures to get taps and toilets to everyone, everywhere by 2030. Please help by signing their petition #MAKEITHAPPEN.

They are half-way there.


  1. I find it distressing when driving past the numerous 'hand car wash' venues appearing everywhere these days, and seeing the gallons and gallons of water -mostly being wasted.

    On the face of it, an entirely worthy cause.
    However, this small unique planet of ours is being over run by humanity.
    We have become a plague of locusts of Biblical proportions.
    Our populations are already out of control.

    "Be fruitful and multiply" is killing our Planet.

  3. To the End is Nigh : I absolutely agree ,the depth of responsibility reaches far beyond donating to WaterAid.
