Tackling the water, sanitation and hygiene crisis, one SPLASH at a time
Today, there is a water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) crisis.
1.9 million deaths are attributed to having a lack of access to WASH, which represents 3.3% of all global deaths. This represents 13% of deaths for children under 5.
Stories from the field
At Thankyou, we believe every person has equal value and the right to a life free from poverty.

Vanuatu. A country you might immediately associate with sunshine, beach, coconuts and honeymoon couples (lots of them).
