Soneva began its Clean Water Projects in November 2009. In recognition of the huge issue of the lack of access to clean water around the globe, Soneva gives 50% of the revenue generated from its water sales to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust.
Globally, 780 million people lack access to safe drinking water and 2.5 billion lack access to basic sanitation services. Two main charities are supported:
- Water Charity
