$570 raised
17 contributors
45 Weeks running

I’m excited to announce I’ve been selected as an official cast member of the socially conscious (and award-winning) TV series Adventure All Stars. Produced by the acclaimed Charity TV Global, this ground-breaking media format provides a platform for me to raise funds and exposure for a philanthropic cause I’m very passionate about. Pre-filming I’m proud to be raising awareness to tackle an escalating health crisis associated with the lack of clean water available to many remote African communities.

Net proceeds raised throughout this project will be granted to Water for Africa Inc. https://waterforafrica.com.au/


Why am I fundraising and how can you help me?

One child dies every two minutes from water related diseases. Contaminated water can transmit diseases such diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio and is estimated to cause 502,000 diarrhoeal deaths each year. Water scarcity affects 1 in 3 people in the African Region and is getting worse with population growth, urbanization and increases in household and industrial uses. By 2025 half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.
Water is essential for life and good health. Fresh water is not only needed for drinking but also cooking, food production and a variety of other uses such as sanitation, hygiene and cleanliness practices. 2.6 billion people have gained access to an improved drinking-water source since 1990 and with your help I aim to provide even more support to remote African communities.
