An announcment from the WaterAid website:

Internationally renowned rock band The Police announced today that they will contribute a portion of the proceeds from their highly anticipated worldwide tour to WaterAid.

This will help generate much needed public awareness and raise funds to support WaterAid’s efforts to address the global water and sanitation crisis.

The Police made the following statement:

“In Western societies, the idea of not having clean and plentiful water is unthinkable. And yet there are millions of people who are suffering and dying from disease because they lack access to this most basic resource. We are proud to support WaterAid in their mission to improve access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education in the world’s poorest countries. We hope the funds and awareness raised during the tour will help to shine a light on WaterAid’s efforts to bring help to millions of people in need.”

WaterAid, based in London, is supported by independent alliance members in the United States and Australia. It delivers water, sanitation and hygiene education through its offices in 17 African, Asian and Pacific nations.

Speaking on behalf of WaterAid, CEO Barbara Frost commented that “WaterAid is honored and delighted to receive the support of The Police during their forthcoming world tour. Our collaboration with The Police will help us deliver water, sanitation, and hygiene education to people living in extreme poverty and help raise awareness about this urgent humanitarian crisis.”

Save the World in Three Easy Steps.

1. Learn. Read this blog to learn more about our global water crisis and how it impacts billions of people.

2. Make a Scarf. Follow our easy instructions to make a beautiful and unique scarf. Wear one to show your support for those in need, and sell a few to your family and friends.

3. Donate. Give the money you raised from your scarf to a worthy charity (See our list of Resources). Even a little bit will change the lives of those who have no access to clean water.

Repeat until everyone has access to safe, clean water.
