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.

"Water Mission is so thankful for the continued support of GF and its employees around the world. GF’s best-in-class products and their employees' contagious enthusiasm embracing their annual GF Walk for Water, are enabling life changing safe water and sanitation projects that are impacting lives every day,” states George Greene IV, PE, CEO & President of Water Mission.

And Andreas Müller, CEO of GF, says: "We are delighted to have helped more than 15'000 people gain access to a better and more reliable water supply through our support of Water Mission. As GF, we can be proud of this contribution and what we have achieved."

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2.2 billion people worldwide have no access to clean drinking water. Since 2002, GF with its Clean Water Foundation has been committed to improving the water supply in developing countries and areas affected by natural disasters. To date, GF has invested more than eleven million Swiss francs in Clean Water projects.
