Safe water for 25 people $45.00

Far from a drop in the bucket, this gift has a major impact. In many parts of the world, clean drinking water doesn't flow from a tap. Without it, people - especially kids - can face serious health risks. Your gift helps provide chlorine dispensers to purify the water supply of 25 people, and trains locals to use and maintain the dispensers, bringing communities together for a better future.

"Before the water comes my children did get sick, I normally took them to the hospital. But since the water comes into the community, I have not had to take my kids to the hospital," said Albert's mum, Mila James.

In Kopas village, Papua New Guinea, Oxfam is making clean water accessible to everyone.

In rural areas of PNG people are forced to get their water from dirty rivers or pools. It means that sickness and dysentery are rife. But thanks to Oxfam's water projects, remote communities such as Kopas have a regular supply of clean, safe water.

Albert and his family are among those who benefit. Sickness in Kopas is down and children are able to devote more time to their schooling.
