My Charity

Registered charity numbers 288701 (England & Wales) / SC039479 (Scotland)

I hope to raise a significant amount of money for a great charity WaterAid by completing my row. 

Why WaterAid ?

The Crisis

  • 748 million people in the world don’t have access to safe water. This is roughly one in ten of the world’s population.
  • 2.5 billion people don’t have access to adequate sanitation, one in three of the world’s population.
  • Over 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That’s over 1,400 children a day.
  • Every year, around 60 million children are born into homes without access to sanitation.

WaterAid’s Achievements

  • Reached over 200 people an hour with safe water in 2013-14.
  • In 2013/14 we reached 1.9 million people with safe water and 2.9 million people with sanitation.
  • Since 1981 we have reached 21 million people with safe water.
  • Since 2004 we have reached 18 million people with sanitation.
