The global water crisis steals the lives of thousands of people each day. Roughly 1.8 billion people wake up every day to a life without safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. Grundfos teams up with non-profit Water Mission to implement safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) solutions for millions of people in developing countries and areas affected by disasters.
Grundfos Walk for Water is a walk honouring those who walk for hours and miles to collect water every single day. Grundfos walks to raise awareness of the crisis, and to raise funds that support solutions, so that one day these individuals will have safe water close to home. Grundfos invites you to come on out to Lion’s Valley Park to join the walk and support this cause.
