World Water Day 2018
"1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with faeces. Unsafe water, poor sanitation and hygiene cause around 842,000 deaths each year."
– World Health Organisation/UNICEF 2014
Thursday 22nd March 2018 is World Water Day, a globally celebrated event designed to raise awareness about the importance of water, and the transformative power it has.
Join us in the Shrewsbury Square, from 10am – 4pm next Thursday. you can find out more about our projects, take a selfie with our giant toilet and find out just how heavy it is carrying 20L of water on your head (something women in sub-Saharan Africa have to do many times a day)
There will also be vintage and pre-loved clothes and traditional African dolls on sale, as well as a selection of local lady Ruth Andrew’s beeswax food wraps and other handmade crafts. (Read more about Ruth and the amazing things she makes here)
All proceeds go to Village Water. Come and see us on the day and help spread the word – safe water really does change lives.
