According to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, 840 million people worldwide are living without access to safe drinking water. In addition, 1000 children die every day due to preventable water and sanitation-related diseases.
On Friday, May 10, Burnaby Central's World In Students' Hands club will be hosting a WE Walk For Water event to raise awareness about the lack of access to clean water in certain parts of the world. The WISH club is dedicated to fixing this issue because everyone deserves access to safe drinking water regardless of where they live. Our goal of $1000 will provide clean water for life to a community of 40 people.
Please support us in our goal of making the world a safer place to live in!
