Walk for Water

Walk for Water

Details

The walk is part of the club`s international project for this year and begins at the Hayburn Wyke Inn at 10.00am.

Chair of the International Committee, John Walker said “ We are hoping to raise money to continue to bring safe water to 3,000 people in six remote communities in Ghana.”

“Presently, women and sometimes young children spend many hours every day collecting water that is mostly not fit to drink”, he added.

The Rotary Club has been working in Ghana for a number of years and initially hand operated filters are installed in each community to enable them to produce enough safe water to drink.

As more funds become available, the filters are replaced by boreholes, giving abundant fresh water at the heart of the village.

Working with trusted partners in Ghana, the Scarborough Cavaliers have so far installed six filters and last year one community received a borehole with two more are in progress.

This year the sponsored walk aims to bring a borehole to a fourth community.

The circular 5.3mile walk begins at the Hayburn Wyke Inn and heads through woodlands and along the Cleveland Way, then returns to the inn along the Cinder Track.

Anyone interested in doing the walk can get more details and sponsorship forms by emailing venkatesh.udupa@gmail.com.

Women and children will have time to achieve their true potential and lead meaningful lives in their communities providing they have clean water.

“ The more funding we raise on May 12, the more boreholes we can build and the more time these communities will have to care for their children and tend to their crops”, John claims.
