This year, Water for Kids are celebrating 25 Years work – a huge milestone!
Water for Kids was set up as a charity in 1996 after two Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) visited Peru as part of a scheme to help eradicate cholera. They were concerned that people in small and less formal settlements needed environmental health services in general and safe water in particular. They looked for a charity which was addressing these issues, but they could not find one.
So they set up Water for Kids as a UK charity, rooted in environmental health to improve the health and wellbeing of children and communities in low income countries through the provision of safe water, good sanitation and other related public health measures where current provision is absent or inadequate.
Killgerm Chemicals supports Water for Kids all through the year and raises money for them at the annual PCN Dinner, through a popular raffle prize draw. The raffle last year in November raised £3,600 which was match funded by Killgerm.
