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


By Stella Almond - Posted on 11 February 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.

The people of Samfya District urgently need us to raise £90,000 to ensure the delivery of safe water and toilets by April 2013, before the dry season starts and the long, arduous walk for water becomes even harder.

With your investment, from now until April 2013, the communities in Samfya will be building latrines and drilling boreholes transforming the lives of over 9,200 people across the district.

Invite one of our free volunteer speakers to come and talk to your club about the life changing work in Samfya District. 

Request a WaterAid speaker

You can also download the full Zambia funding proposal which details how your investment will change lives in Samfya.

Thank you for changing lives this World Water day!
