A child dies every 15 seconds from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene. Since its inception, WaterAid has helped more than 5.5 million people across 14 countries gain access to safe water.
WaterAid relies on the support of the water sector and Scottish Water is proud to hold WaterAid as our charity of choice. Our staff regularly organise fundraising events, with all donations going towards WaterAid.
