With the help of this donation, the Eva Ahlström Foundation will make a total of EUR 200,000 donation for supporting UNICEF Finland's WASH-project (water, sanitation and hygiene) in India. The project aims at improving water, sanitation and hygiene conditions of 37,500 children in 15,000 families in 150 pre-selected schools. The project takes place in 2011-2014 in the Madhya Pradesh state which is one the poorest areas in India. The most common death cause of small children is still diarrhea caused by unclean water.
The objective of the Eva Ahlström Foundation is to support underprivileged women and children in Finland and internationally through co-operation with established non-governmental organizations. The Foundation receives donations both from private people and communities.
