Global 6k for Water
May 25 @ 11:00 am| Free
Come walk 6km and change lives!!
Every $50 you raise through Team World Vision will transform a person’s life through clean, safe water.
This year, we are supporting water programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Menkao is a largely rural community on the outskirts of the capital city of Kinshasa. The community has few natural springs, and has suffered from a lack of investments in infrastructure. Our goal is to improve the lives of 13,834 people through access to clean water, and improved sanitation and hygiene facilities.
Only 55 percent of the population in Menkao has access to clean water, and only 15 percent can collect water within 30 minutes’ walk of their home. Women and girls, some very young, will walk for up to three hours to get water. This negatively affects their ability to work or go to school. The long trek on isolated paths also increases the risk of abuse and rape.
