Our fundraising efforts last year saw us support WaterAid alongside 4 other charities. A team from PDL took part in the WaterAid 80 Mile Ride through the Yorkshire Dales and it’s great to see how the funds raised are helping to make a difference across the world.
The community of Kolbari are from an ethnic minority called Munda, who are extremely poor and often badly treated. The area where they live in southern Bangladesh has always been prone to heavy rainfall and flooding, and recently it’s become more erratic. But since WaterAid and our local partner worked with the community to install a rainwater harvesting system in 2018, they’ve been able to move forwards and thrive together.
Clean water has made a particularly big difference to the Munda women – I hope you’ll enjoy reading some of their stories.
