Brian’s Goods for Good Store
It's 2018, my wife and I have two grown up sons in good jobs with homes of their own. Yet had we lived in, say, Syria or Yemen it would be completely different. All our homes could have been destroyed along with any source of income - we would be lucky just to be alive. In places like the UK we are privileged and lucky, please help me to help Save the Children protect children trapped in war zones like these through no fault of their own. You can help by buying one of these waterless bottles, you get the bottle and a child in a conflict zone gets clean, safe water. Please make a statement and buy a waterless bottle or make a donation today. Thank you so much
£100 raised of a £100 target. £100 could provide a month of clean water to 12 children and their parents.
Right now, one in six children in the world are directly affected by armed conflict.
But the thing that’s killing more children than any weapon? The lack of access to clean water.
In a conflict zone, clean water can be hard to come by. Water sources have been battered by persistent bombing, and often people can’t access enough fuel or electricity to power their water pumps.
But it’s even worse for children. They may have fled their homes in fear, and struggle to find water as they search for somewhere safer. Collecting water may be dangerous due to armed groups, or sometimes water points can be seized entirely and guarded by men with guns.
With the lack of water and the damage to sanitation systems, deadly diseases can quickly spread – killing children in their thousands.
The good news is that we can help
Whatever the situation, whatever the circumstance, we get clean, safe water to the children that need it.
What buying a bottle can do
A donation of £10 could truck a day’s worth of emergency water to a displaced family in Yemen.
A £15 Classic Waterless Bottle could distribute two week’s worth of water purification tablets to a family that has fled Myanmar.
The price of 3 Classic bottles could supply a ceramic water filter, ensuring a family in Yemen has access to clean water every day.
The price of 10 Classic bottles could buy 37 jerry cans, enabling 37 Rohingya families to transport and store clean water in Bangladesh.
The price of 140 Classic bottles is all it takes to rehabilitate an existing well in Somalia, so it can once again provide 500 people with safe, clean water every day.
The price of 778 Classic bottles could pay for the construction of a traditional pond (birka) to store life-saving water for a community of 5,400 people in East Africa.
