Approximately 75 per cent of Afghans are still in urgent need of clean water and basic sanitation.
The precise location of our partners’ work is not disclosed for security reasons.
Who’s being helped
Nearly 3,000 families are benefiting from a water, sanitation and hygiene promotion programme being run by our partner in a rural area of Afghanistan.
In rural Afghanistan, communities have no safe accessible drinking water, and there is open defecation. This leads to a prevalence of water and sanitation-related diseases. The number of people dying from these preventable illnesses is one of the main catalysts for the water and sanitation work.
