Walking for Water
Your Fundraising Challenge against poverty and injustice
Orbisa has nine children and earns her income solely from her goats. Just like her children, they need clean water every day to survive. The walk to the water source takes so a long time and there are many dangers on the way, especially for a woman.
„I walk up to 10 hours every day to get water from a lake.“
Climate change has devastating consequences that we already see. For people living in disaster areas in poverty, the effects are existence-threatening. In Africa and other parts of the world, droughts are only getting longer and longer. The rains fail to come. Pastureland dries up. Water basins are empty. Livestock die.
