Clean water can:
- Enable parents to go to work knowing their children are healthy and safe at school
- Stop the fear of sexual attacks on women and girls walking long distances to collect safe clean water
The Turn On The Tap campaign aims to provide safe, clean wells within walking distances of homes.
Simon Barrington, Samaritan's Purse UK Executive Director, said: "It breaks my heart to see the tragic plight of so many people like Angelina and her children fleeing for their lives and yet still struggling to survive.
"Please help us provide the precious gift of clean drinking water to thousands of families like these so their lives can literally be turned around."
Samaritan's Purse says it helps people like Angelina.
Angelina and her family of ten children had to move into a camp for internally displaced people in Abiemnhom county, along with 4,000 other internally displaced people in the region.
They live in a conflict zone in the north and rarely have enough food to eat.
Angelina walks for six hours in intense heat on dangerous terrain to collect dirty water from a river.
Resources in the region are scarce due to overcrowding and so the local authorities had to move them on.
Samaritan's Purse said that one third of existing hand pump wells are breaking down and it therefore wants to rehabilitate and install 70 wells in this region for people who currently have no choice but to drink dirty water.
The Turn On The Tap scheme is one way to try and safe, clean wells within safe walking distances.
