Safe water is a gift of life

Mercy puts her life on the line every day to collect filthy water that often makes her and her family sick. But she doesn’t have a choice. Where she lives in Zimbabwe, the severe drought has left millions of families like hers without a safe water supply.

By supporting CARE’s Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) project in Zimbabwe, you will bring families the lifesaving clean water they urgently need. What’s more, your tax-time gift will be multiplied up to ten times thanks to complementary funding from the Australian Government.

Will you please help girls like Mercy and their communities stay resilient in the face of such a crisis? Here are just some examples of how your tax-time donation will fund crucial elements of our Zimbabwe WASH program – and help save lives:

  • Your donation could help train women to become village pump mechanics – so they can support both their family and their community with access to clean water.
  • Your donation could fund community members in latrine building so villages like Mercy’s have better access to hygienic toilet facilities.
  • Your donation to help repair and rehabilitate community boreholes and provide fresh clean water to drought-ravaged communities.

Safe, clean water is one of our most basic survival needs. It’s a human right. Will you please help bring it to families like Mercy’s who are suffering without it?

Your tax-deductible gift will be multiplied up to ten times to help families access safe water and sanitation.
