Transcript of Deliver Life thank you to the water industry

Life at Kiomboi hospital in Tanzania has changed forever. And it's thanks to supporters like you.
Deliver Life highlighted how unsafe water and an unclean environment put mums and their babies at risk. Through the appeal we wanted to reach families around the world with safe water.
Our partners over at Faversham House helped us tell the story about the links between maternal health and access to water and sanitation

Companies also featured some of our great content throughout their website, like the Anglian Water webpage below. They also included a blog from one of their directors in support of the appeal.
As Deliver Life picked up pace in November, work started at Kiomboi hospital.

You promoted the appeal
on your websites:
Companies including Severn Trent, Thames Water and Anglian Water featured banners on their homepages.
Staff at Environment Agency offices around the country brainstormed ways to support the appeal and held a multitude of activities including barn dances, World Toilet Day quizzes, cake sales and Christmas jumper days.

Every day, thousands of mums-to-be, like Uchiya in Ethiopia, are risking everything for dirty water.
When we first met midwife Juliana at Kiomboi hospital in Tanzania, the stakes couldn’t have been higher. Without enough safe water to wash with and to keep the wards clean, the risk of deadly infections like sepsis was all too real.
There were some challenges to face, including heavy rains and sub-surface water. But together with local partners - SEMA and the Iramba District Council -
WaterAid began work to
connect a supply of clean
water to the maternity ward, labour room, lab building
and theatre room, and
to install bathrooms
and toilets.
On 10 November WaterAid launched a very special appeal.
Thank you to everyone who promoted #DeliverLife on social media...
In November, you used laughter to talk seriously about sanitation - with comedy quizzes, 'spend a penny' promos, comedy nights and more!
