The Christian Fellowship and Care Foundation (CHRIFACAF), alongside other partners in the WASH sector, asks you to become part of a global movement this World Water Day and join!
The World Walks for Water and Sanitation is a global event demanding action to address the world's largest crisis - water and sanitation. Millions of people walk great distances each day to collect water. Billions have no safe place to go to the toilet and are forced to walk into fields to defecate, risking assault and compromising their dignity. Unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation means children have to miss school and are dying needlessly from disease caused by contaminated water. Ending the water and sanitation crisis would help break the poverty cycle, would increase school attendance, and save lives.
From 16-24 March 2013, thousands of people across the globe will walk together to demand political change. The walks will take place around World Water Day, 22nd March, and will build on the success of The World's Longest Toilet Queue in 2010, the World Walks for Water campaign in 2011, and of the World Walks for Water and Sanitation in 2012.
This year, as part of the year long "Keep Your Promises" campaign, the World Walks for Water and Sanitation 2015 is calling on leaders to uphold these and other promises made locally, nationally, regionally and globally to ensure access to sanitation and water for all people which we now have to make sure they keep, and we need you to get involved and make a stand.
We're calling on people across the world to join the thousands of campaigners walking to demand political leaders keep their promises on sanitation and water this World Water Day. Organise your own walk or join one near you. Find out more and register at www.worldwalksforwater.org.
