How the money you raise helps

Taj Bibi is 28 and from Pakistan. Tragically, she lost her unborn baby fetching water from a well far from her home.  

She says, "I was very sad and prayed that water should be available at our doorstep. It is as if my prayers were answered when ActionAid came to our village and installed hand pumps.

"The best part is, they asked the women to identify the most suitable place for their installation. This is fair because women have to fetch water, even if they are unwell, pregnant or extremely exhausted from working all day."
