On April 22 , 2011 - I took on a fund-raising 9 day expedition in Northwest China this Easter (Gansu province, on Silk Road, south of Mongolia) to raise awareness and funding for water conservation projects in China. During our expedition, we completed a walkathon of 118km in 7 days. Proceeds go towards building water cellars for locals living in the area – one of the world's poorest and most arid.
Northwest China is one of the driest regions in the world. Annual rainfall is only about 300mm yet annual evaporation rate is as high as 1,500-2,000mm
A water cellar can be built for every HKD2000 (~USD250) – each water cellar can store enough water for 1 household for 1 year. Water cellars take an average of 4 months to build and last 10+ years. If you wish to donate and support this, please email me for payment options. Receipts can be issued for donations of HKD100 or more. Thanks for your support and reading this!
