The Great Wall Of China
As one of the New Wonders of the World, the Great Wall of China is one of the most appealing attractions on the globe. Stretching over 8,851 km, the Wall winds up and down across mountains, deserts and the most popular cites in the country.
Originally constructed as a fortress over 2,000 years ago, it has been used to protect the Empire from attacks. Centuries after its construction, it remains one of humanity's greatest achievements. The Great Wall is more than just a triumph of engineering. It is a link with the legendary emperors in China's history.
Where your money goes
In Gaza, clean water is now scarce. The territory's only aquifer is highly contaminated, so people are forced to drink water mixed with sewage. With the crisis so bad, many Gazans are struggling to survive. All funds raised will provide lifesaving, clean water for children in Gaza.
Key facts about water in Gaza
- There is a severe shortage of clean water in Gaza and the situation is reaching crisis point.
- 90-95% of the water from Gaza’s underground water aquifer is not safe to drink.
- The blockade has banned or delayed construction materials needed to repair Gaza’s collapsing water and sanitation network.
- Without proper water and sanitation services, 90 million litres of untreated or partially treated sewage is dumped into Gaza’s sea every day.
