WaterAid’s #MakeItHappen


You should join us now and sign the WaterAid’s Make It Happen petition for a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water to drink and a safe place to go the toilet by 2030.

It’s an exciting time as the prospect of getting water and sanitation firmly on the international agenda starts to become very real – I’m delighted that you’re going to be a part of it. As it’s such a critical moment in the campaign and this opportunity won’t come around again for another 15 years, I ask you to add your name too? You can do this by going to www.wateraid.org/everyone. It’s so important.

The Sustainable Development Goals will be agreed at the end of September 2015, when I very much hope I’ll be able to share your part in a fantastic campaign success that will mean an end to the water and sanitation crisis is finally in sight.
