Lunchbox/Soapbox: Adam Laidlaw on Water Aid

Listen to Lunchbox/Soapbox: Adam Laidlaw on Water Aid

One of the biggest untold tragedies in our world is the simple fact that 2.5 billion people still lack safe sanitation; somewhere to go to the toilet, wash their hands and get clean water. We all know that water, sanitation and hygiene are fundamental to human development.

Today WaterAid’s Adam Laidlaw reminds us how access to clean water and sanitation transforms the lives of women and girls – and their broader communities – and outlines what’s being done to tackle the global sanitation crisis.
