Walk for Water donation supports four clean water projects

At the Walk for Water 2019, GF demonstrated its clear commitment to clean drinking water. The donation of CHF 500'000 went to Water Mission via the GF Clean Water Foundation. The charity supports four aid projects in Indonesia, Malawi, Uganda and Peru.

As the biggest aid project for clean drinking water, the Walk for Water 2019 will go down in the history of GF. Thanks to the wonderful input from more than 1'000 employees in Germany, the US, Indonesia and Switzerland as well as numerous sponsors, the final check rounded up by GF amounted to CHF 500'000. The GF Clean Water Foundation was delighted to hand over this to the non-profit partner Water Mission. This donation will be used to support four different clean drinking water projects in Indonesia, Malawi, Uganda and Peru.
