WaterAid Australia marks 20 Years of transformative impact in water sanitation

< 1 min read

This year, WaterAid Australia is celebrating 20 years since it was founded by the water industry.  

For 20 years, WaterAid Australia has been working with local partners to have a significant impact on access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in vulnerable communities around the world. 

Since its inception, WaterAid Australia has reached over five million people globally through its comprehensive WASH programs.  

These initiatives have been instrumental in supporting 88 healthcare facilities and 511 schools to access essential water, sanitation and hygiene services, enhancing the well-being of communities and promoting better health outcomes. 

In celebration of its 20-year anniversary, WaterAid Australia has released a film highlighting the impact achieved over the last two decades. 

WaterAid Australia Chief Executive Tom Muller said he is proud to be celebrating 20 years of impact. 

“As we mark this milestone, I am filled with immense gratitude.” 

“Our impact has only been possible through the help of our partners and supporters.” 

Muller highlighted his gratefulness toward WaterAid’s partners, supporters and volunteers.

“I extend my heartfelt thank you. Your unwavering dedication and generosity have been the cornerstone of our success.” 

Despite these accomplishments, challenges persist on the path to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6)—ensuring universal access to safe water and sanitation by 2030. WaterAid Australia acknowledges the urgent need to accelerate efforts. 

“As we look ahead, the journey towards achieving SDG6 remains challenging but essential,” Muller added.  

“We are committed to intensifying our efforts, driven by the urgency to ensure no one is left behind in accessing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene.”
