Right now, millions of people around the world are living without access to clean water and sanitation. This crisis is costing lives and ruining the chances of community development.
WaterAid's vision is a world where everyone has access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene; basic human rights that most take for granted.
It only costs £15 to give one-person access to clean water for the rest of their lives. Each singer taking part raises a minimum of £50, meaning Sing for Water saves thousands of lives.
The brilliant idea to unite choirs in song has been a joy for us to be a part of year after year. The dedication of choirs across the UK, their magnificent singing and fundraising efforts have helped us to raise over 1 million pounds for a variety of projects across the globe. Funds raised over the last few years have contributed to our work in Malawi, allowing communities to access water for the first time, and for us to share these life changing moments. The concept of Sing for Water has proved to be very popular and we are so very grateful to the team for all their hard work in making this happen. Sing for Water is always a highlight in our events calendar!Sam Rohde, Community Fundraising Officer, WaterAid
