100,000 PEOPLE!

We are fully engaged in preparations for our 2021 meter reading, which we always announce on World Water Day.
It turns out: we have already been able to give more than 100,000 people access to clean drinking water!
How much is that actually? And how can we be so sure?

100,000 people fit in the largest football stadium in the world in Guangzhou that is currently being built.

In 2019, 100,000 people also stood on the museum square in Amsterdam for the celebration of Ajax. The police called on people to stay away.

The municipalities of Dordrecht, Deventer and Delft each have about 100,000 inhabitants. Imagine if they all run out of clean drinking water.

100,000 people is also the just released single from the Kings of Leon. Is that a coincidence?

If you look further at the number 100,000, you will see that for 100,000 euros you can buy a Tesla Model S Performance that takes you to 100 km per hour in 2.6 seconds.

Schoon water een zaak voor iedereen - Amref en MADE BLUE

And for 100,000 euros we can give another 6,850 people access to water!

100.000 PEOPLE

this is an unbelievably large number of people who have now gained access to clean drinking water thanks to the contributions of our ambassadors. It is more than a drop in the ocean for the millions of people who still lack access. That is why we continue to work very hard on our mission: clean drinking water for everyone. We are currently doing this in these projects:

Making water everybody’s business

Een vijfjarig waterproject in Ethiopië, uitgevoerd door Amref Flying Doctors.

Golden neighbourhoods on Java

Our project on Java, Indonesia, west of Bandung. The project is part of “Gerakan Desa Emas”: The movement to create golden neighbourhoods.

Clean drinking water for minority groups

/ /
Since October 2019 we invest in this project in Vietnam with the aim to provide 3,572 people with clean drinking water in their homes.

How can we be so sure that we have reached this amount of people? Well, prior to each project we determine how many people we can reach in the regions where we install the water supplies. In doing so, we maintain some risk margin.

During the project we keep in close contact with the implementing partners about the progress and if necessary we adjust the plans. Afterwards, an evaluation will follow in which we map out exactly how many people benefit from the water supplies.

It may also happen that we reach more people than expected, such as with the Water Vending Machines from Said. All in all, we know for sure that we always achieve at least what we promise to our donors!

Do you also want to contribute to clean drinking water for everyone in a way that suits you?
