Why we are supporting Water Aid ?
Around 700,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation – that’s almost 2,000 children a day. (Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group, 2012 and Unicef Child Mortality Report, 2012)
The average person in the UK uses 150 litres of water a day. In Australia it’s around 500 litres and in the USA, over 570 litres.
