5/4/19: Come walk for a good cause on the annual Walk for Water! 29% of the population does not have access to safe drinking water and you can make a difference!
29% of the population does not have access to safe drinking water. The burden of acquiring water for families falls disproportionately to women. In parts of Africa and Asia, this burden is an average of 20L carried six kilometers.
As engineers and humanitarians, we at EWBNZ find these kinds of statistics unacceptable, and are working hard to help local engineers design, operate and maintain locally sourced supplies in a culturally appropriate context.
Help us help women and communities by supporting us this World Water Day on our annual Walk for Water challenge. Join us, as we carry 20 litres of water, on a 6 km loop of the Auckland CBD
