How far would you walk for a glass of clean water?

In some of the world’s poorest communities, it’s normal for women and children to walk for hours just to collect water. In fact, 263 million people worldwide spend over 30 minutes walking to collect water from a safe source. This is a problem that primarily affects women and girls, who are responsible for water collection in eight out of ten households that don’t have access to water in their homes.

To coincide with National Water Week, WaterAid is inviting Australians to walk in solidarity with those who need to walk long distances to collect water. Challenge yourself to walk, run or ride for a just one hour a day for five days while raising awareness for those who need our support.

Registrations are now open.
