Today 650 million people are living without safe water and 2,3 billion people don’t have access to adequate sanitation. Over 315,000 children die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That’s 900 children a day. Everyone everywhere needs a safe and sustainable supply of water: for drinking, washing, cleaning, cooking and growing food. With the WaterAid Cord Bracelet you can contribute to WaterAid's important global work.

10% from each sold WaterAid Cord Bracelet will be donated to WaterAid’s important work around the world. The bracelet’s blue cord and its silver drop symbolizes clean water and its importance for people’s health and survival.

– WaterAid does a fantastic and important work for people in need around the world. It feels natural and right to help and contribute with the specially designed WaterAid Cord Bracelet. As a woman and mother myself I am passionate about issues related to improving life for women and educating children for a better future. As they say, "every drop counts" says Sophie Gyllenhammar Mattson, Founder and Designer.
