On Sunday, November 4th 2018, I will take part in the 'startbaan' charity run in Soest, where I will go running for 5 km with a jerrycan filled with water, to raise money for water projects in developing areas, with the purpose that more people worldwide get access to safe drinking water and good sanitation. For every 50 euros that I will collect, I will carry an extra liter of water with me for charity. So I would kindly encourage everyone to donate as much as possible to make it a real challenge!
During my student days I volunteered several months in Uganda, where every morning we had to walk 5 km to a water pump to collect water with a jerrycan. This water served as your drinking water, water to wash yourself with, to wash your clothes with to cook your food with and in case you had some water left flush your toilet with. Because it is not yet obvious that all people in the world to have access to safe drinking water and good sanitation, I would like to contribute to collecting a nice amount for the following charity: https://wandelenvoorwater.nl/
