Launched in 1998, Just a Drop is a registered charity that raises money to build wells, install boreholes and hand pumps, and carry out sanitation and health education programmes in some of the poorest parts of the developing world.

Their mission is to reduce child mortality by delivering accessible clean, safe water where it is needed most.To date they have helped over 1 million children and their families in 29 countries.
