GWMWater customers and stakeholders are invited to walk in solidarity with those who need to walk long distances for water.
WaterAid’s Walk for Water event coincides with National Water Week and GWMWater has entered a team to build awareness and raise funds to help people all over the world access clean water.
Teams of all fitness levels and abilities are asked to walk, run or ride for one hour a day for five days and raise funds for vital water, sanitation and hygiene projects throughout Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste.
GWMWater Managing Director Mark Williams said the activity enabled staff to connect with each other, particularly with many working from home, as well as raise awareness and funds for a good cause.
“Not only does the event raise awareness and much needed funds for countries with limited access to clean water, it encourages our team to stay active and connect with their colleagues,” Mr Williams said.
“Taking part in this challenge reminds us of the importance of our work at GWMWater, and broadens our impact to make a positive difference in countries less fortunate than ours.”
All over the world some people have to walk an average of six kilometres to collect water. That's why the GWMWater team is challenging themselves to walk, run or ride for one hour a day between 18 to 22 October, to raise money and help provide clean water to some of the world’s poorest communities.
WaterAid’s mission is to reach everyone across the world with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene within a generation.
