Whenever we meet with our partners Frank Water, we’re always left inspired by some of the amazing stories they have to tell. If you live in Bristol you’ll have come across Frank Water before; they’re the guys with FRANK on the bottle, they also run popular campaigns such as Kama Korma and Drink Me Save Lives! ‘Bought a water from Friska recently?’ – Give yourself a pat on the back because 10p from every bottle sold goes toward supporting Frank Water and all of their charitable work around the world.
Since 2005 Frank have been improving the lives of people that aren’t fortunate enough to have clean drinking water or sanitation. They’ve currently funded sanitation for more than 333,000 people in 300 communities and over the next couple of days we’re going to pass on just a few of the success stories that Frank have shared with us.
The Baiga women from Amlidih
The beautiful, strong Baiga women from Amlidih village, are happy with their newfound freedom now that they have access to water in their own village. Before, they’d make a 3km round trip to the nearest temple to collect water but they were limited to one bucket each per day which was rarely enough for the whole family, so they’d send the strongest members of the community on a further 2km to collect water from a handpump in a different village. A 7km round trip, which would take up a significant part of the day, preventing them from working in the forest and fields and earning money. Their relief was tangible and the time they have now is golden.
