What better than to replace gifts with the gift of clean water through WaterAid? That is what we at Ludvig Svensson thought when we started planning for our anniversary, and we are proud to support WaterAid and their programs to bring clean water to the world's poorest communities.
In lieu of anniversary gifts, Ludvig Svensson is requesting donations to help transform lives in a newly started WaterAid project in Ethiopia. This project aims to reduce local communities' vulnerability to drought and famine by improving access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene in three districts; Ticho, Konso and Assosa. The project will improve the lives of 23,614 people affected by the drought in these three districts.
WaterAid is an international non-governmental organization with a mission to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities in Asia, Africa, the Pacific Region and Central America. They work with local partners in practical and sustainable projects. To learn more about WaterAid, please visit www.wateraid.org.
