Celebrated on Wednesday, the humanitarian organization that fights against the injustice of poverty and inequality launched a fundraiser (“Donate water, save a life”) with some excellent testimonials
Creepy numbers: still today 1 in 4 people in the world do not have access to sources of clean water for drinking or washing. Half of the world’s population – over 3.6 billion people – cannot count on adequate sanitation services. In countries affected by conflicts, natural disasters or the climate crisis, the lack of water multiplies the victims, exposing the populations to epidemics such as cholera, Covid or typhoid. Dirty or unsafe water can be up to 20 times deadlier than direct violence in protracted conflict settings such as Syria, Yemen or Ukraine, particularly affecting children and women. Tomorrow is World Water Day and Oxfam Italia – a humanitarian organization that fights against the injustice of poverty and inequality – has launched the fundraising campaign “Donate water, save a life”.
Until 5 April, it will be possible to offer a small but precious contribution with a supportive text message or a call from a landline to 45593. Sports testimonials of the “Donate water, save a life” campaign are Barbara Bonansea, striker for Juventus and the Italian women’s national team, Fabio Quagliarella, symbol player of Sampdoria, and Andrea Ranocchia, former defender of Inter and the national team. In addition to them, two champions of swimming pools, who have their natural element in water: Filippo Magnini and Amaurys Pérez. Together with the sports champions, various TV personalities are also involved in the fundraising campaign: Ilaria D’Amico, Caterina Balivo, Camila Raznovich and Pino Strabioli.
