Currently in Malawi, 1 in 5 people have no supply of clean water, and nearly 1 in 2 has to cope with the indignity of having nowhere safe to go to the toilet.
The British WaterAid recently launched a campaign, entitled The Big Dig, which will transform lives in rural Malawi by providing the basic necessities of clean water and safe toilets.
WaterAid: “This campaign is the first of its kind because we will be discussing the progress, live at www.thebigdig.org, where you can meet locals involved with the projects, share their stories and watch the project progress. We want to be transparent about the process behind The Big Dig and we would love for you to be part of the process.”
They raised already over £40,000 in one week and the campaign will run until 18 September.
All money donated by the UK public to the appeal will be matched by the UK Government from their aid budget. The goal is to raise £1.2m.
