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