Communities in the Samfya District urgently need your support this World Water Day, 22 March 2013

Life in Samfya District is incredibly hard; roughly one in ten people have access to a safe water source and fewer than one in 100 have access to somewhere safe to go to the toilet. Several times a day women and children begin the long, tiring journey to collect unsafe water. Water that they know will make them ill and even worse, could kill them.
