The Walk for Living Water is responding to UN World Water Day’s call for public awareness and tangible action since 2011. The event is also one of the activities of the Climate Ready @ HK. The Walk has raised funds over the years to build water and sanitation facilities for tens of thousands of water-deprived people.
For the 10th Walk this year, Amity HK and the Water Supplies Department are co-organizing the event and raise awareness of the water crisis among the public, and to fundraise for people who are in need to improve their water and sanitation situation.
To minimize the risks of COVID-19 infection through close contacts, this year’s Walk for Living Water will be very special. By taking part, “walkers” can stretch their legs and beat the gloom of home confinement as well as to raise funds to bring hope to underdeveloped and water-deprived areas.
You and your friends are the masters in deciding the date, time and place for your Walk!
We invite people from all over the world to conduct their own walk at home or at a safe place of their choice. Share your results online. Walk for you, walk for others!
