When it comes to humanitarian disasters, Oxfam's specialty is water and sanitation, including latrine building, sewage systems, waste removal and clean water delivery. The sad reality is that dirty water kills. Without access to clean water, hospitals cannot perform surgeries. Babies cannot be bathed. Meals cannot be cooked and thirst cannot be quenched.
This gift is truly lifesaving – and it is essential to our disaster response programs. The water filters, tap stands and plastic water tanks that make up this gift can supply water to 1,000 people a day.
For $22, you can supply a family of four with safe, clean water.
