Carrying 10 lt of water
for 5.6 km
to build water wells
What is Walk4Water
To Develop Empathy
Walk4Water is an annual event organised by Time to Help to raise awareness of water scarcity. On average, women and girls in developing countries walk 6 kilometres (approximately 3.5 miles) a day, carrying 20 litres (about 42 pounds/20 kgs) of water. It is common for this journey to take more than 15 hours a week in some areas.
We will each challenge ourselves to carry 10 litres of water for 5.6 km to build empathy with those struggling to access clean d and safe water. We also want to raise funds to build new water wells. By building these wells we will provide easy access to clean and safe water to thousands of vulnerable people.
We will walk to make their journey shorter.
When and Where
The event will commence on Saturday, Sat 22nd Oct 2022, at 13.30

Starting from Wellington Arch, we will go straight up to Oxford Street. From there, we will follow Oxford Street up to Tottenham Court Road. Then, we will reach Holborn and go down from Kingsway Road to take a turn onto Great Queen St., passing through Covent Garden.
