Mohamed runs for Water!
BCT has always championed the cause for clean, safe water and have been passionately involved in many projects to provide water wells and hand pumps that will deliver precious water that is clean and accessible and so prevent life threatening diseases.
Mohamed Kanji, one of BCT’s trustees, ran the annual London Marathon this April and in doing so has completed his tenth marathon in an impressive 4 hours, 46 minutes and 10 seconds!
This year, Mohamed has been fundraising for water related projects in line with the aims and objectives of the UN International World Water Day, held annually on 22 March, with an overall aim of raising £1500. 748 million people in the world do not have access to safe water.
Every 20 seconds, a child dies as a result of poor sanitation and the provision of improved sanitation and safe drinking water could reduce diarrhoeal diseases by nearly 90%.
