WaterAid is an international charity that transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.

They work with local partners to deliver services, influence decision-makers to make change happen, and generate incredible support across the world.

Hugh says: “WaterAid works closely with communities to change their lives forever by using simple, sustainable and effective technology which I find inspirational. WaterAid’s vision is of a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water and sanitation by 2030, this is an ambitious aim, but one that is achievable in our lifetime. I am pleased to become their Ambassador and support their work to reach even more people around the world with clean water and sanitation”.

Hugh has been an ambassador since January 2015.

Please see the WaterAid website for further details.
