WaterAid Supporters Trip to Zambia 2013

On July 6th, Peter Farrer, Scottish Water Chief Operating Officer, joined a group of 5 senior executives from the UK water industry on a trip to see WaterAid’s work in action; destination Lusaka, Zambia

Peter visited WaterAid’s work in some of southern Zambia’s poorest areas, and found out about WaterAid’s work and mission. Peter got first-hand experience and real evidence of WaterAid’s methods and successes and found out more about the need for continuing support and investment in these communities.

WaterAid Scotland and Scottish Water recently launched the Scotland for Southern Africa strategy, and Zambia is one of the 7 countries that will benefit from the money raised in Scotland and by employees. We’ll be providing regular updates as Peter learns more about the people, projects and places where WaterAid delivers transformational change, and all made possible through the generosity of committed and valued supporters.
