          When Roumina was born, there was no clean water in her village. So she had to rely on
          the river. But the river was so thick with parasites that just one sip could kill her.

          Then when Roumina was three years old, all of that changed forever. Because that was
          when clean water arrived in her village.

          Today, instead of getting sick, Roumina and all the children here are thriving. Instead of
          fetching water from the river, they’re going to school. Instead of facing a life of poverty,
          they’re setting goals for a brighter future.

          Now we need to add water to the life of every child, everywhere. WaterAid is already
          providing clean water to over 200 people every hour. With your donation, we can
          reach even more.
