“When we have a delivery here, we never have enough water for the mothers to shower with or to clean the delivery room afterwards.” Fatuma works as a pharmacist at Yiraber Health Centre in Ethiopia 🇪🇹. By supporting #TheWaterEffect, you can help make sure that health centres like Yiraber get a vital supply of clean water this winter.
1 image, 3 normal things: Clean water, sanitation and hygiene. This beautiful community that I visited in the north of India now has access to WASH ( Water, hygiene and sanitation ) thanks to WaterAid and the support and funding from the water programme. if we don’t continue supporting them who else is going to do it? 1 in 9 people worldwide still don’t have access to clean water and 1 in 3 don’t have access to a toilet. I didn’t come all the way from sunny Tenerife to have a career, I came to make a difference and to change lives. I’m running a marathon on each continent multiple times to raise awareness and funds to build toilets and finish thirst;I won’t stop running until we provide WASH to everyone everywhere; I even if I have to run 100 times around the world.

The Water Effect / 1 in 9 people still don’t have access to water close to home. This is a photo exhibition that explores the lives of those who are directly impacted by the global water crisis. By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages - 2025 is around the corner! The exhibition also shows some grassroots projects educating villages in Mali about water hygiene and sanitation through comedic plays where the whole village gather to watch as a community. Another side to water scarcity is those who hope to get rich off of it - with global demand for water expected to explode in the coming years, people are investing in this space as a long-term bet on a fundamental commodity whose supplies are limited. Certainly not ethical! Check out the @wateraid campaign and exhibition on at @richmixlondon#thewatereffect#wateraid#waterscarcity

Meet Yehasab, a cleaner at Yiraber Health Centre in Ethiopia. “We have all the cleaning equipment - we have a broom, a mop, detergents, soaps, gloves, boots - we have everything! But, ironically, we don't have (clean) water.” Without clean water, keeping the health centre clean is a huge challenge and diseases spread easily. Do you think that’s fair? If, like us, you don’t, then help health centres like Yiraber get vital access to clean water. Click on the link in our bio to find out more. #TheWaterEffect

Meet Minata, centre right, and her family. She has brought her son Modibo to Talo Health Centre in Mali 🇲🇱, to be treated for diarrhoea, though the lack of clean water at the health centre means her faith in the treatment isn’t as strong as it should be.
She says: “Normally the doctor should wash his hands before and after consultations. He can get germs and transmit them to children. It’s not a good thing, not to wash.” This makes Minata worry for her children.

आज हम आपको एक ऐसी साहसी और मजबूत इरादों वाली महिला से मिलवाने जा रहे हैं जो एक नेक मिशन के साथ ऐसा कुछ कर रही हैं जो काफी कठिन है.
48 साल की मीना गुली ऑस्ट्रेलिया में पली बढ़ी.पढ़ाई में होशियार मीना का खेल कूद से छत्तीस का आंकड़ा रहता था। पढ़ाई पूरी करने के बाद विभिन्न कम्पनियों में महत्वपूर्ण पदों पर रही.
वर्तमान में हॉन्गकॉन्ग की एक कंपनी में सी.ई.ओ. है. मीना के जीवन में एक ऐसा भी वक्त आया था जब उनके लिए चलना फिरना तक मुश्किल हो गया था.
20 साल पहले एक कार एक्सीडेंट में उनकी पीठ में गहरी चोटें आईं थीं। डॉक्टर्स ने कहा था कि दौड़ना तो दूर मीना का चलना फिरना भी मुश्किल होगा। लेकिन अटल इरादों वाली मीना ने खुद को फिट करने के लिए अथक परिश्रम किया. शुरुआत स्वीमिंग से की फिर कुछ महीनों में धीरे धीरे दौड़ना शुरू किया.अपने जॉब के दौरान चीन में पानी की समस्या को लेकर एक सेमिनार में हिस्सा लेने के बाद उन्हें लगा कि वे दौड़ती तो हैं ही क्यों न अब पानी बचाने के मकसद के साथ दौड़ें। बस यह मीना का मिशन बन गया.
पिछले साल मीना ने 40 दिन में 40 मैराथन पूरी की हैं। वे अब भी इसी मिशन में लगी हुई हैं। इस साल उन्होंने 100 दिन में 100 मैराथन दौड़ने का लक्ष्य बनाया है.
इस मिशन के अंतर्गत उन्होंने बीती 4 नवंबर को न्यूयॉर्क में 42 km की पहली मैराथन पूरी की। दूसरी भी न्यूयॉर्क में ही की ,फिर 6 - 7 नवंबर को लंदन में दौड़ी उसके बाद फ्रांस पंहुच गईं। उनका भारत आने का भी कार्यक्रम है लेकिन अभी स्थान तय नहीं है.
20देशों से होते हुए 11 फरवरी को 100 वीं दौड़ फिर से न्यूयॉर्क सिटी में होगी। तब तक मीना 4,200 km दौड़ चुकी होंगी। इतनी सारी खूबियों की वजह से ही मीना को लोग " मैराथन वुमन " कह कर पुकारते हैं.

Happy Monday! If anyone is around Shoreditch area of London, check out The Water Effect exhibition, ‘Portraits of Resilience’ by photographers @joeyldotcom and @guilhemalandry in collaboration with @wateraid@wateraiduk for their fundraising appeals at the Rich Mix cinema - on until the 23rd February.
Today, 1 in 9 people around the world still don’t have clean water close to home, and 1 in 3 have no toilet. Raising awareness of the crisis needs images with both impact and understanding.
Lawrence’s series focuses on the people of Tombohuaun, a remote community in Sierra Leone who had no water, while Alandry’s series celebrates a troupe of travelling performers in Segou, Mali who promote good hygiene.
Through community collaboration, the photographers show peoples lives in the global water crisis with respect and dignity.
Interpreting classic West African photography, subjects are given space to take control of their image and introduce narrative through personal objects, while backdrops reference their unique locations and cultures - from banana leaves in Tombohuaun, to local cloth in Segou.
The Water Effect Appeal runs from December 2018-March 2019. For further information about WaterAid, to volunteer or to donate, please visit wateraid.org/uk. #thewatereffect#wateraid#exhibition
New exhibition in London: Featuring work by acclaimed photographers @joeyldotcom and @guilhemalandry, The Water Effect features portraits, taken in Sierra Leone and Mali, that are community focused, collaborative, and let the unique qualities of the communities and cultures do the talking. It is on now, and runs until Wednesday 27th February, at @richmixlondon in Shoreditch.
Times: Weekdays from 9am - 11pm.
Weekends from 10am - 11pm.
We look forward to seeing you there!

When a community gets clean water, everything changes. It creates a powerful impact, improving livelihoods, building futures and transforming lives. Welcome to #TheWaterEffect.
Mary, from Uganda 🇺🇬, is a 20 year old mother of one. Having grown up spending long hours collecting dirty water, she’s looking forward to a healthier future for her son. “Ever since clean water arrived in my village, I have more time to care for my baby Israel. He is healthier and doesn’t get skin rashes or suffer from typhoid. The water used to make people’s skins pale, especially after bathing. At times we would also get diarrheal diseases.” On display at the UN in New York City, this image comprises a photo by @elizapowellphotography and @james_kiyimba, with multimedia interventions by @villanaart, and is part of The Water Effect exhibition, telling stories of hope, opportunity and lives transformed. #HLPF#GlobalGoals#TheWaterEffect.
