Our COVID-19 Relief Fund is now closed. But you can still give clean water.
100% of donations made to our COVID-19 Relief Fund will help our local partners deliver lifesaving resources to vulnerable communities.
Without strong healthcare systems to rely on, prevention is absolutely critical to protecting vulnerable people in developing countries from COVID-19. Our local partners are urgently expanding their work to bring vital resources to even more communities.
Globally, 40% of people lack access to a handwashing facility. It’s worse in Sub-Saharan Africa, where 75% of people lack access.
Good hygiene practices, especially effective handwashing, are key to preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
Educational posters, radio ads, and songs by local musicians are raising awareness about COVID-19 in rural areas.
As the coronavirus spreads around the globe, the communities we serve are at an unprecedented risk. See how our partners are adapting and scaling to protect the most vulnerable from COVID-19 and learn how you can help in this video message from charity: water founder and CEO Scott Harrison.
Our local partners are experts in disease prevention. As WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) providers, their work is always focused on preventing waterborne diseases, like diarrhea and typhoid fever, not only with access to clean water but also with training on healthy sanitation and hygiene practices. Now, their expertise is exactly what’s needed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Can handwashing stations and songs about disease prevention really save lives? Absolutely. This essential work is keeping families safe from COVID-19 in places where healthcare systems are not equipped to support those who fall ill. Your gift makes it happen.

Long before the coronavirus became a global health crisis, members of The Spring, our monthly giving community, were already part of the solution. And they’ll continue this work long after the pandemic ends. The Spring is bringing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to people in need every single month. Join them for as little as $5 per month.Learn More
