This March saw us raise £3,400 for Concern Universal. This money will be ring-fenced to complete 3 water point projects. As part of sustainable water projects this will bring clean water to at least 750 people. Concern Universal have provided and renovated over 3,200 water points in Malawi to date (350 in 2012 alone). This simple activity can cost as little as £4-£5 for each person who will receive a clean water supply. Sustainable clean water solutions and better sanitation practices can dramatically decrease cases of water borne diseases. Mapped against the installation of 608 water points, a recent study in 1 district saw cases of diarrhea decrease by a staggering 83% over a 5 year period. Clean water changes and saves lives. Incredible to think that 98 1%Members changed the lives of over 750 in this last month.

United Purpose, previously known as Concern Universal, is an international development charity with an innovative community-led approach to delivering the Sustainable Development Goals and eradicating global poverty and inequality.
