At the May 9 meeting of Fredericton City Council, May 28, 2022 was proclaimed as Fredericton Global 6k for Water Day. To view this proclamation, click here.
Clean and safe water supplies, and sanitation facilities, are critical in ensuring the health and safety of children around the world. In the Morne Pelee community in Haiti, access to water is a major limiting factor. Contaminated water can lead to serious and sometimes life threatening diseases such as cholera. In addition, access to water is often far from home and it takes a substantial amount of time each day to collect water. This collection of water is often by children, taking time away from other activities including their education.
The Fredericton Global 6k for Water is raising funds to help provide safe and accessible water, construct water stations & latrines and rehabilitate wells to create real and lasting change for Haitian families. Join us for this fun and family-friendly community event and help make a difference for children and families in Haiti. Click here for more information on how you can participate in this event.
