#cyblessings 28th February 2012


884 million people in the developing world use unsafe drinking water sources.

Let's get some perspective on this massive number.  884million is:
- more than 14 times the population of the UK
- just under 120 times the population of London.
- nearly 3 times the population of the entire United States of America.

In short it's a massive amount of people.  A massive amount of people who might catch diseases that kill them from the basic need to drink.

I hope you agree with me that this is completely unacceptable and will count your blessings and donate today.

Christian Aid are asking us to give 50p if we've always lived in a property with running water. Yes, that's me, even the most basic of student accommodation had running water once the ice was thawed, so I commit to donating 50p today.
