Supporting WaterAid's Vote Water Campaign

I am pleased to be supporting WaterAid UK's Vote Water Campaign.


Nearly 1 in 10 people around the world don't have clean water close to home. Climate change is worsening this crisis, as floods contaminate fragile water sources and droughts dry up springs and wells.


To mark World Water Day (22 March), WaterAid commissioned a study finding that one in four people in the UK (25%) think water is the most important issue to spend overseas aid on and over half (53%) rank it in their top three issues.


Over two-thirds (70%) also think the UK Government should invest in minimising the impacts of climate change, with just over half (56%) of these believing that investing in water, sanitation and hygiene is the best way to do so.


You can add your voice to the call by signing WaterAid’s Vote Water petition: www.wateraid.org/uk/vote-water
