Bring the joy of clean water


The power of water is something special. It helps us live a healthy, happy life in so many ways - not least through swimming. A gentle lap of a local pool or the exhilarating chill of an open-air swim can help free our minds and our bodies. It's an activity that so many of us can enjoy, often in beautiful surroundings like the Great Swim Series locations.

In the UK we're so lucky to have clean, fresh water in abundance for both drinking and swimming. But for many around the world that just isn't the case. Right now there are 785 million people who don't have clean water close to home. They must rely on far-away unclean water sources, wasting hours every day collecting water that isn't even safe. They're forced to drink and clean with dirty water that could make them sick. But together, through our love of water, we can change that

When a community gets clean water for the first time there's a tremendous sense of joy and celebration. They know that there's now the possibility of a healthier, happier life. There’s a chance for children to stay in school and get an education, for families to make a decent living, and for the whole community to lift themselves out of poverty. You can help spread these joys and possibilities by joining WaterAid’s Great Swim Series team, and bringing clean water to people around the world.

Whether you’re already a swimming fanatic or you're looking to dip your toe in for the first time, join Team WaterAid to make a difference to your own life and to others' - Have fun, enjoy the water and raise some money to help bring clean water to others around the world.
