WaterAid's Walk for Cleaner Water

WaterAid help provide clean water and safe loos in developing nations. Last year they helped millions of people at an average cost of £15 per person. This is a charity that gets the money to where it will make a difference.

It was great to join the Mayor of Dover to welcome a sponsored walk to raise funds for WaterAid. The walkers went from Folkestone to Dover. I had a good chat about how they supply water drawing equipment that can easily be repaired and how they ensure the supply is clean and safe - and stays that way. Charities that make a difference, that walk the walk rather than talk the talk are the charities we should be giving the strongest support to.
