Working in 26 nations across the world, WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.
Clean water is fundamental for life, yet more than 663 million people, approximately one in ten of the world’s population does not have access to it. The absence of clean water close to people’s homes also affects people’s time, livelihoods and quality of life.
World Water Day on the 22nd of March each year, is about focusing attention on the significance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 is ‘Nature for Water’.
“Wherever you are and whatever you do on March 22, make it about nature and water.”
One of our core values at Edel Immersys is that we appreciate the power of water and the support that nature has given us. That’s why we want to give something back:
