Greenland 100km Trek for WaterAid

Hello All....
In less than 3 months I head to Greenland to Trek 100km in 5-6 days in order to raise funds and awareness for a charity called WatterAid.  We will hike for 7-9 hours a day, carrying a backpack with everything we will need for the week and camping in the arctic circle with minimal facilites.  We will not be reachable except by helicopter for most of the Trek, but this is a once in a lifetime experience to raise money and awareness for our charity, WaterAid. It's WaterAid’s mission to get clean water and sanitation to everyone, everywhere by 2030.  Our fundraising efforts here for WaterAid will help to transform lives through providing access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

These basic services are essential and affect so many aspects of people’s lives; they are fundamental to health, education, gender inequality, nutrition, urban growth and prosperity. Yet, 844 million people don’t have clean water to drink, 2.3 billion people don't have access to a decent toilet, and diarrhea caused by dirty water and poor toilets kills a child under 5 every 2 minutes. This must change.

Statistics can look stark. 1 in 3 people on the planet don't have a decent toilet of their own. 1 in 9 don't have clean water close to home.

But thanks to incredible support, WaterAid has already reached millions of people in some of the toughest places in the world.....but we can’t stop there.

By working together, we can reach everyone, everywhere within a generation – and transform millions more lives for good.

Having access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene is essential to living a healthy, dignified life. With your help, WaterAid can continue to reach the millions of people still living without these services.
