What’s happening in the World?

Clean drinking water, proper toilets and good hygiene are essential, yet millions of people don’t have access to these basic services.

According to WaterAid:

• Over 650 million people live without safe water.

• 2.4 billion people don’t have access to adequate sanitation, one in three of the world’s population.

• Around 315,000 children under five die every day from diarrhoeal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation. That’s almost 900 children per day.

• Globally, 31% of schools do not have clean water and 34% lack adequate toilets.

• People have to walk an average of 30 minutes to collect water and return home. In some cases it can be a lot longer.

The are two videos at the end of this page for more information.

All proceeds will be donated to WaterAid who have been bringing safe water, sanitation and hygiene education to those who need it most for over 10 years.

More about WaterAid

‘Three good reasons to do the water challenge’ – by someone who has done it!

1. It’s a great conversation starter when out with family or friends and they order coffee and you order water…. Tell them why, and that it’s a fundraiser, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by their response.

2. It caused me to reflect on my ‘relationship’ with food and drinks (not particularly alcohol, but tea, coffee etc), and the fact that I was invested emotionally in what I drank (true). It did me good to know I would still feel happy and safe if my only drinks for 2 weeks, were water.

3. Now every glass of water I have reminds me I am stronger than I think I am.

Over to you – go on, take the challenge, it’s easier than you think. PS: if it’s not for you, just donate to a yogi who is doing the challenge.
