About Water and Sanitation
Over the past five years, CRS has assisted more than 2 million people worldwide in gaining access to clean water. We have provided more than a million people in rural areas access to improved sanitation. We support water, sanitation and hygiene services in more than two dozen countries, focusing on services for the poorest and most remote communities. Much of our assistance is directed to sub-Saharan Africa.
CRS supports WASH programs in coordination with the three CRS strategic priority areas of health, agriculture and emergencies. Our work improves health and well-being, supports emergency preparedness and response efforts, and contributes to the sustainability of water and natural resources.
