We've enjoyed the benefit of clean water for more than 160 years in the South Staffs Water area.
Around 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation across the world. That's over 1,400 children a day.
WaterAid is the only international, non-governmental organisation dedicated exclusively to providing safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world's poorest people.
For more than 30 years - through the support of our customers, employees, businesses and external partners, we have worked in partnership with WaterAid to help transform the lives of thousands of people.
Since 1995 donations from our customers to WaterAid have amounted to over £1.23m.
Just £2 per month could give one child access to clean, safe water for life, or give dignity to some of the women and girls who have nowhere safe or private to go to the toilet.
"Clean water is fundamental for all of us, yet so many people around the world don't have it. WaterAid is changing that by building wells and pumps. That's why they are my charity of choice."
Susannah Gray, South Staffs Water customer
In 2019/20 we raised over £54,000 from events, activities and from customer donations.
Fundraisers have included fly fishing events held at Blithfield Reservoir, an annual ball, a monthly lottery and staff events, all organised by our keen volunteers.
