In the past decade, great progress has been made, whereby over 90 percent of the world’s population now has access to improved sources of drinking water. Still, billions of people lack these basic rights, resulting in thousands of deaths due to preventable, water-related diseases every day. Clearly, a lot of work is yet to be done.

We support worldwide access to clean water and sanitation

Within our focus area Water, we work with WaterAid in a transformative program to create systemic change on a global scale. In addition to this, H&M Foundation supports local projects that have a direct impact on the sanitation and health of people around the world.
