The Drop: A weekly update from charity: water during the coronavirus pandemic.

You helped raise $417,800 for COVID-19 relief!


We asked you to help support our local partners on the frontlines of the pandemic, and you responded. Thanks to you, we raised $417,800 to bring lifesaving water, sanitation, and hygiene resources to some of the world’s most vulnerable communities through our COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Our local partners are already making the most of every penny you’ve raised. In Kenya, Welthungerhilfe has reached 13,500 people with COVID-19 messaging. Côte d’Ivoire now has 189 additional handwashing stations, implemented by the International Rescue Committee. United Purpose has broadcasted 149 radio messages in the Dowa region of Malawi. These are only a few examples of the incredible work that is happening right now because of your generosity!

You’ve brought hope to so many over the past few months as we’ve worked together in the fight against COVID-19. On behalf of all of us at charity: water, thank you for your support. You are generating goodness in the world when we need it most.

A community full of world-changers

“I’ve seen firsthand the transformative power of clean water. Now, more than ever, access to this basic human need is essential in the prevention of COVID-19. I’m proud to support such a passionate team and their partners who are working around the clock to provide lifesaving resources to the most vulnerable during this uncertain time.”
—Nutan
“The fund seemed like the best way to help address the crucial needs of clean water, sanitation, and hygiene. Due to job losses and uncertainty not everyone can lean in during this time. Right now, our family still has the means to be able to give, so we wanted to step up and contribute more.”
—Joel
Nutan and Joel are both members of the Spring, bringing clean and safe water to people in need every single month. This incredible community is on a mission to end the water crisis in our lifetime—and you can join them.

Complete The Journey

Just in time for summer break: we’re releasing resources for the last two seasons of The Journey! 
THE JOURNEY: RWANDA
See how our incredible local partner in Rwanda is working to build massive piped systems in the third season of The Journey. Then, download a worksheet to calculate your own daily water usage, print out coloring pages, and learn how to create a piped system out of cardboard boxes, paper rolls, and dried pasta.
THE JOURNEY: UGANDA
Our last season of The Journey is filled with inspiring leaders. Watch season four to see how leaders like Gladys are changing their communities for the better and use the worksheets and activity guides to reflect on what leadership means to you.
We’d love to see your projects! Use #charitywaterkids and tag @charitywater on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to show us how you’ve brought these activities to life.
