Help us to provide safe, clean water to the urban poor!
Rossopomodoro is partnering with Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) – a not-for-profit organisation that helps transform cities to benefit the millions that lack access to effective water and sanitation services.
This World Water Day, on the 22nd March 2018, Rossopomodoro and WSUP have joined together to raise funds for and awareness of the global water crisis affecting low-income urban areas.
More than 184 million city-dwellers still have no access to clean, safe drinking water. With more than 200,000 people moving to the world’s towns and cities each day service providers cannot keep up with demand, leaving vulnerable communities without even the most basic water and sanitation services.
WSUP works in fast-growing cities to help all urban residents, including the poorest, enjoy high-quality, affordable water and sanitation services. They work alongside local providers, enabling them to develop services, build infrastructure and attract funding so that they can reach more low-income communities – including the poorest.
To date, WSUP has reached more than 16 million people with new or improved water and sanitation services since 2006 – creating long-term change in the water and sanitation sector across Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Zambia.
Rossopomodoro has chosen to partner with WSUP because that access to clean, safe drinking water and a proper toilet should not be luxury: water and sanitation are basic human rights that are currently denied to more than one-third of the world’s population.
This World Water Day, we ask are asking you to please join our campaign to give low-income city-dwellers the chance of a safer, healthier life through access to clean drinking water.
It costs as little as £9.40 to bring long-term, sustainable water, sanitation or hygiene services to one low-income individual. Now you can help us to reach this goal!
From today until the 25th of March in all our restaurants you can add £1 onto your bill or text ‘WSUP18’ plus the amount to 70070; for example if you want to donate £3, text ‘WSUP18 £3’ to 70070.
