child drinking water


Come To Me & Drink is an organisation with a mission to save lives in the world’s poorest communities by providing accessible, clean and safe drinking water.

Every hour, almost 60 children* will die due to diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. *Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimate (IGME) 2014, led by UNICEF and WHO. In Africa alone, 40 billion hours every year is spent on collecting water, a burden that mainly falls on women and children.

Come To Me & Drink aim to build 200 boreholes in the deprived communities of Africa and Asia. Providing these boreholes will give children the time and opportunity to go to school and receive education, and allow women to work and take care of their families. Healthy lives, good education, and wellbeing do not exist without access to clean water. With your support this can be a reality for millions of people across Africa and Asia, as Come To Me & Drink aid bringing this global crisis to an end.
