Re: Activator Ashraf Kenny cycles for clean drinking water in Mali
Young and taking charge!! Activator and community activist Ashraf Kenny with 21 Friends in collaboration with the Islamic Relief Worldwide NGO,will take on a 200 km cycling challenge through Andalusia, Spain to raise funds for the relief of the water scarcity conundrum in four areas of Mali. The cycling challenge takes place between the 17 – 20th January 2018 and aims to raise a total of R50000.00 which will provide water for 4800 people in dire need of clean water.
“Living in areas where there has never been a working water supply; the residents are exposed to drinking water from rivers that are a long walk away from home. These are the same rivers where they also go to wash and do their laundry. It is of dire importance that help should come now! While this is the reality in many countries across the world, the ripples of change have to start with a single droplet.”
