In 2016, the World Health Organization and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program confirmed that 663 million people, or 1 in 10, lack access to safe water. And in 2015, the World Economic Forum announced that the ‘water crisis’ is the #1 global risk based on impact to society as a measure of devastation.
On International Women’s Day (IWD) March 8 2017, the team at the Fox Group took part in Circle Movement’s #CircleWaterChallenge
The team walked over a kilometre carrying 20 litres of water each in an effort to raise money for Water Aid Australia.
The challenge was created to express solidarity towards the thousands of women who walk 6 kilometres or more each day to collect water.
Water Aid work with local partners to help community’s access safe water and sanitation. And they use their experience and research to influence decision-makers to do more to provide these vital services.
