I'm running 13 miles as a toilet becuse 1,400 children die everyday from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and a lack of toilets and i want to do something about it.
So what do WaterAid do? They provide sustainable access to water, sanitation and hygiene to the poorest communities around the world. So far, 21 million people have been reached with safe water and 18 million reached with sanitation!!!
But there is still a long way to go. In today's world 748 million people do not have access to safe water and 2.5 billion (billion!!!) live without a toilet.
The Bath half is one month away and so far i'm up to 5 miles and already suffering with blister problems so a long way to go! I'm not the most sporty of people so this is a massive callenge for me especially with the added humiliation and potential chafing of the toilet costume!!!
So what can you do?? Just £15 will provide ONE PERSON SAFE WATER FOR LIFE...the price of a meal out or a few pints. So please dig deep and spare a few minutes to donate, donate, donate!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and anything that you can spare will be greatly appreciated.
