Oxfam Unwrapped - Safe Water for a School

HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?

The money raised by this gift will go into our Saving Lives fund, providing what’s needed most in emergency situations around the world, including water, sanitation, shelter and food. 

Depending on where you would like your gift to be used, it could help someone like Jessica Batoure (pictured), her classmates and her wider community. 

Jessica knows the benefits of having a supply of clean water on site at her school. She lives in Burkina Faso, West Africa, where communities have to walk long distances to fetch water – which might not be safe to drink. So having a water pump in the school grounds is even more of an incentive for children to come to class. 

And having a reliable water supply has also enabled the local school to start their own vegetable garden, where you’ll find onions, cabbage, beetroot, aubergines, potatoes and yams.
