Help Children Avoid Unclean Water and Deadly Diseases
In Laos, children are risking their lives every day to get a drink of water. And living in rural communities without access to safe water, they don’t have much choice.
They either make a dangerous journey to get clean water, or drink dirty water that’s dangerous to their health. Drinking contaminated water causes diarrhoea, one of the biggest killers of young children in Laos.
Plan International needs your help to raise $144,000, so we can bring lifesaving safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects to more villages across Laos next year.
Make a gift here now and it will be matched up to five times by a generous Australian government grant.
With the help of our supporters, Plan International has worked with local governments and businesses to build new water systems in remote villages.
But we know from decades in the field that it’s not enough to just install infrastructure. We must also teach communities about good hygiene and sanitation, and empower them to build and maintain their own water tanks and toilets into the future.
