PROUD SUPPORTER OF
Clo&Flo with Charity Water
Our wish is that clo&flo be a vehicle and platform to drive positive change so that we can help towards making the world a better place.
Water is our most vital element for life, yet 771 million people in the world live without access to clean water. That’s 1 in 10 people worldwide or 10 times the population of the UK.
We are partnering with Charity Water a non-profit organisation bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
For every service booked at clo&flo, we donate to Charity Water.
The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.
Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.
43% of those deaths are children under five years old. Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives every week.
In Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water.
Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school -- all of which fight poverty.
Clean water helps keep kids in school, especially girls.
Less time collecting water means more time in class. Clean water and proper toilets at school means teenage girls don’t have to stay home for a week out of every month.
Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa.
When a community gets water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures.
Access to clean water enables education, income opportunities and health – especially for women and children. Without water, life cannot function as normal.
