Sofidel and WaterAid

SOFIDEL AND WATERAID: A NEW PARTNERSHIP

Through this new partnership, Sofidel is committing to a more general task of raising awareness among its stakeholders and supporting projects that aim to ensure access to water and the availability of better toilets, sanitation and levels of hygiene, in the developing countries where the organisation operates.

Access to water and the widespread provision of sanitation and hygiene services are essential factors in ensuring good health, nutrition, women’s empowerment, education and the development of decent housing and successful urban planning. Sofidel, whose products aim at ensuring hygiene and comfort in everyday life, believes strongly in the importance of hygiene and the availability of good sanitation to promote health and protect the dignity of people.

WHAT IS WATERAID?

WaterAid is a non-governmental organisation founded in 1981 in the United Kingdom, and since then it has given 25 million people access to drinking water and provided sanitation and hygiene for 24 million people and works in 37 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific Region.

Today, more than 650 million people worldwide still don’t have access to sources of clean water, while 2.4 billion people can’t count on adequate sanitation or hygiene. Around 900 children every day (315,000 every year) die due to diseases that can be linked to a lack of drinking water and sanitation.
