The new gallery marks one year of WaterAid’s involvement in the Acqua for Life partnership, where Giorgio Armani’s Acqua for Life is donating 900,000 euros over a multi-year period to help the charity get clean water to some of the world’s poorest communities.
Through her unique lens and using her signature style, Viviane Sassen presents her artistic angle on life in Madagascar, celebrating the beauty and power of water, which can help transform lives by improving health, education and livelihoods.
Around the world, a staggering 844 million – one in nine – do not have clean water close to home. This has a devastating impact on health and education, with up to 443 million school days lost every year because of water-related illnesses.
Giorgio Armani’s Acqua for Life partnership with WaterAid is helping tackle this global crisis by funding the provision of clean water and decent sanitation in schools, communities and health centres in Nepal, Papua New Guinea and Madagascar.
In Madagascar, WaterAid is working in the Manjakandriana district to build a new water pipeline, which will help reach 5,300 more people with clean water. When clean water is easily available, mothers can give birth safely, children can go to school and fulfil their potential, and parents can work to support themselves and their families.
