About Water and Sanitation

Over the past five years, CRS clean water projects around the world have provided more than 2 million people with access to clean water and more than a million people with 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. Many of our clean water projects are focused on 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.
