Running for WaterAid

I realised it would probably be helpful to share some of the background to why I am running the Marathon, who I will be running for and why.

Why am I doing this ?

I had the opportunity to go to Rwanda in 2005 and I have very clear memories from that trip of seeing people walking huge distances, carrying heavy water containers – on a daily basis.  Everyone appeared to have to go through this – from the youngest to the oldest.

The need is huge!

There are around 630 million people in the world who don’t have access to clean, safe water.  Around 2.3 billion people don’t have access to adequate, safe sanitation.  Around 315,000 children under-five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation. That’s 900 children per day

WaterAid is seeking to transform this situation and has goals of reaching everyone by 2030.

So please visit my Virgin Money Giving page and donate as much as you are able http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/anthonywarren1

In the words of a well-known supermarket chain – “Every little helps!”

Thank you.
