WaterAid  At WaterAid, it’s our mission to bring clean water, toilets and hygiene to everyone, everywhere by 2030.

"I think that the hygiene problem is a serious problem and it is all related to a lack of water. You can come to the health centre for treatment but if the hygiene conditions are not met you could get sicknesses in the health centre” says Dr Martin at Talo Health Centre in Mali. By supporting #TheWaterEffect, you can help make sure Talo gets clean water this winter. Link in our bio. Photo: @guilhemalandry

How will clean water impact the remote health centre in Talo, Mali? Staff will be able to wash their hands safely, helping to stop the spread of disease, working conditions will be much cleaner, and patients will be able to wash themselves properly after giving birth or after treatment. All good reasons to support #TheWaterEffect this winter. Link in our bio. Photo: @guilhemalandry

Aissata, 29, is pregnant with her fifth child. Her first four children were born here at Talo Health Centre, which lacks access to clean water, “When children drink the water from the traditional wells, many of the children get diarrhoea and we have to bring them to the health centre where they treat them.” This winter, help bring clean water to Talo to greatly improve the health and futures of all who live here. #TheWaterEffect Photo: @guilhemalandry

"I want my children to grow up to be healthy," says Aissata, holding her one day old baby at Talo Health Centre in Mali 🇲🇱. "It would bring many changes if we had clean water (at the health centre). It would make delivery easier and working conditions better." Want to help this remote community this winter? Click on the link in our bio. #TheWaterEffect. Photo: @guilhemalandry

Imagine a hospital without clean water to treat patients or clean the equipment. This is the reality that Dr Martin Koné and his team at Talo Health Centre in Mali 🇲🇱 face every day. Not only that, the clinic lacks electricity so the staff treat patients by the light of a mobile phone when extra light is needed.

Every parent wants their baby to be happy and healthy, but when there isn’t any clean water to wash them with it’s very difficult to stop infections affecting them. Baby Drissa, who lives in Mali 🇲🇱, has painful skin abscesses caused by poor hygiene and was born at Talo Health Centre, which doesn’t have a supply of clean water. Want to help?
