UNICEF New Zealand Tap Water Project

UNICEF New Zealand is helping to spread the word about the UN Children’s Fund month-long Tap Project. Currently running from 9th March to 9th April, all New Zealanders are invited to donate $1 or more at participating restaurants each time they order something we all take for granted…

a simple glass of tap water.

The Tap Project is now in its second term after last year 118 restaurants donated all profits to life saving work in Tanzania. This year there are currently over 260 restaurants and cafes across New Zealand signed up to participate, click here to find the site closest to your home.

UNICEF provides access to safe water and sanitation in more than 90 countries across the globe, with this years profit going to help the people of Laos. UNICEF’s long term goal is to reduce the number of people without safe water and basic sanitation by 50% by 2015.

Dirty water is the second biggest killer of children under five worldwide, with nearly 5,000 children die every day as a result of water-related diseases including cholera, typhoid and malaria.

Just $1 can provide a child with safe drinking water for 30 days, so why not help UNICEF Tap Water Project and start helping to save lives today.
