Covid-19 has affected every country in the world including those in which Frank Water has its partners and projects.
Since April 2020, we’ve focussed our efforts on supporting the communities that we serve in India and Nepal, those that are among the world’s poorest and most marginalised and therefore likely to be hardest hit by the virus and its effects. At the same time, we’ve worked hard to maintain staff and operations in the UK.
Thanks to support from individual donors, corporate partners, and trusts and foundations, we’ve launched Covid-19 response projects in both India and Nepal.
With our partners, we’re providing marginalised groups and low-income families with access to safe drinking water, hygiene materials, and decent sanitation – the three crucial ingredients that people need to stay safe from disease.
You can read updates on these projects at frankwater.com/blog.
Our response has been informed by directives from the Indian and Nepali governments and led by our partners with whom we are in regular contact. In addition, our overseas team provides valuable insight and information, thanks to their proximity to the constantly changing situation.
At the same time, we’re continuing to plan our ‘regular’ programmes of work in both India and Nepal.
The Covid-19 pandemic has underlined the need for global water security.
At Frank Water, we’re committed to building a water-secure future for communities across the world. Over the next five years, we’ll continue to provide the world’s most vulnerable people with long-term access to clean water, sanitation & hygiene. We’ll support communities to monitor, manage and conserve their own water resources and we’ll work with government agencies, larger NGOs, (non-governmental organsations) and the WASH (water, sanitation, hygiene) sector to leverage funds, replicate our work at scale, and amplify our impact.
We are grateful to all of our supporters who have continued to stand alongside us and the communities we work with, during this unprecedented time.
We continue to rely on generous donations to deliver our vital work, please donate now, if you can.
