THE JOY OF GIVING - Our North of England Fundraising Manager, Muqaddus, is off to #Kashmir delivering food aid in a couple of days, so we had a whip round to get him a departure present - and we raised enough for a bar of soap! (he's much loved in these parts😃) As you can see, never was a man more grateful for the generosity and humour of his colleagues than our Muqaddus 😃. To find out exactly what humanitarian work he'll be up to keep your eyes on our page as we'll be posting regular updates. https://www.hrf.org.uk/our-projects/food-projects/
DOES WATER HAVE A WEIGHT? For most of us clean water has no weight, is given little thought. We turn a tap and out it runs. Yet 663 million people live without it & for them water has a physical weight. For this mass of ordinary people, often children, spend extra-ordinary amounts of time walking to collect and carry water for their families. And when they get it, it is often dirty. A QUIET REVOLUTION This is why we put so much energy & effort into bringing clean water to communities. It is a gift that keeps on giving – for when folk no longer spend hours collecting water, children can return to school, families can improve their economic situation, people stop dying from unnecessary diseases & communities thrive. BUILD A WELL, BUILD A COMMUNITY To find out how to become part of this quiet revolution step this way - www.hrf.org.uk/our-projects/water-projects

It all started so well when our Matthew brought his son, Emmanuel, in for a taste of working life in the charity sector - for he was all action, and good intention, until a large dinner brought on a family sized nap. Hopefully he'll bring his energy and enthusiasm back again soon. Though we may take it easy on the size of lunch we get him next time! :-)

Children shouldn't be living in rubbish dumps. In the last two weeks, 1,000 young people have been infected with the cholera disease according to statistics. Malnutrition is making children vulnerable to contracting disease. We can prevent the loss of lives, visit www.hrf.org.uk/yemen.
What everyday illness can kill you in just 3 hours? 🤔#TuesdayThoughts A: Diarrhoea What is for most of us in the UK 24 hours of discomfort, can for many, in countries troubled by of conflict, drought or economic poverty, be a catastrophic illness. An everyday, treatable, condition, that we often give little thought to, but which ends the lives of over half a million children under 5 each year. And the cure is simple - access to clean water 💧 Build a waterpump or well with us, do it in memory of a special someone or simply chip in towards the building of one. Call us on 0207 060 4422 or visit www.hrf.org.uk/water.
