I love long distance running and cycling. I am passionate about green issues and poverty alleviation. I love raising funds for overseas development charities that work in poverty alleviation. I have a strong interest in sustainable development.
Barcelona Marathon for Clean Water
I am running Barcelona Marathon on March the 12th, 2017 to raise money for Hope Spring, a great charity that helps poor communities in Africa access clean drinking water. I could use big impressive statistics to back up the reasons I am raising money for a water charity, but I will not. I will just share a story from one of the past beneficiaries of Hope Spring water project called Amuda.
Amuda is 8 years old. Each morning, she must wake up early, take a plastic container and walk 2 miles to the nearest well. She joins a long queue. When it is eventually her turn, she collect about 10kg of water into her plastic container, carry it on her head, and head back home.
