On September 26 and 27, 2020 Grundfos invites everybody to join a virtual Walk for Water, connecting people across the globe to raise the visibility of people in need of safely managed water and sanitation.
每个人都依赖于干净的水。然而2.2十亿人around the world do not have access to safely managed water and sanitation.
To provide relief for people and areas in need Grundfos hosts the annual Grundfos Walk for Water – an fundraising event held for Water Mission, a non-profit engineering organization that designs, builds and implements sustainable safe water solutions around the world. United by a common purpose, participants help generate awareness for people affected by the global water crisis by walking 3.7 miles (6 km). This is the average distance some women and children make every day to collect water that is often contaminated.
A virtual broadcast kick-off will bring awareness of the 2.2 billion people who live without safely managed drinking water. The Grundfos Virtual Walk for Water Kick-Off will be broadcast on September 25, 2020 on global platforms including LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube. Here a line-up of guest speaker will present the walk, including CEO at Grundfos Mads Nipper and Group Executive Vice President at Grundfos Poul Due Jensen.
100% of funds generated through the Walk for Water event go toward Water Mission and provide relief to people and areas in need.
Since 2007, more than 1.8 million people around the world have received safe water as a result of the Water Mission and Grundfos partnership. Grundfos Walk for Water funds have directly funded and served communities in Haiti, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania.
Commitments from supporters and corporate partners will go to Water Mission to provide sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) solutions for people in developing countries and disaster areas who do not have access to these basic needs.
