You can help families like Leaia's in Samoa access clean water

Samoa may be a country surrounded by water, but access to clean drinking water is scarce in some areas, with many families facing extreme hardship as a result. 

Families like Leaia's who don't have a piped water system often have to collect water in old refrigerators or walk long distances with buckets. Without clean water, children are more likely to miss out on school. 

With your support, families in Samoa can have access to water tanks so that they can harvest rainwater. This means children can have easy access to water to drink, clean and bathe. The time that was previously used to collect drinking water can now be used for other essential tasks and, most importantly, children don’t have to miss out on school. 

Donate now and help more families like Leaia's access clean water today.

It makes me feel worried for my family and I, especially my kids because of the lack of water supply we have access to, we really need the water all the time.
