World Kindness Day
Today is World Kindness Day, where people try to make the world a better place through promoting acts of kindness. World Kindness Day was first celebrated in 1998 by The World Kindness Movement, who formed a year earlier in Tokyo, Japan. Currently, there are over 28 nations involved in the movement, all on a mission this World Kindness Day to create a kinder world by inspiring individuals and nations towards greater kindness.
This World Kindness Day, drop4drop are going to continue working hard to help provide clean and safe water sources across India and countries of Africa. Some of our recent projects have taken place in Mpigi District in Uganda. Mpigi is one of 112 districts in Uganda and is home to just over 200,000 people, a mostly rural area, where many lack access to a clean and safe water source. DROP4DROP’s work here is crucial in providing this. Many of the local people said that women and children spent hours walking to a distant water source, only to wait even longer in the queue for collection. In addition, collecting water at night is poses a threat for women and children, with some community members describing it as ‘scary’. Following the installation of a new water pump, women and children of Mpigi are now able to spend more time in education and employment opportunities as opposed to travelling hours every day to a contaminated water source.
Do an act of kindness this World Kindness Day. Donating just £15 could provide clean water to an entire family that is currently forced to live without. To keep up with our projects follow us on social media @drop4drop
