Our climate is changing at an alarming rate, making it even harder for the world's poorest people to get clean water. Globally, temperatures are rising, which means the weather is becoming more extreme, resulting in either too much or too little water. In fact, a staggering 90% of all natural disasters are water-related, and they're massively impacting people's lives.
East Africa, home to Mount Kilimanjaro, is heavily affected, and the impact disproportionately affects poor communities. Droughts have caused issues with access to clean water, and floods have led to the collapse of water and sanitation supply infrastructure, putting the most vulnerable communities at risk.
WaterAid works with partners and local communities in 27 countries worldwide to reach the world's poorest people with a steady supply of clean water, come rain or shine.
But there is a lot more to do. To find out more about our work and how we're helping people affected by climate change, visit Climate change | WaterAid UK
