:: Water Aid given £150,000 by Aquaplastics ::
Earth-Info.Net is very pleased to report that the Aquaplastics site has now recorded 1,500,000 hits and that Water Aid will consequently receive the maximum £150,000 pledged to it for clean water projects in Nigeria...

So good on ya, if you've been clicking on this site each day!

Water Aid has in fact had a very successful year as it has already received £1,329,618 from Children's BBC show Blue Peter which staged a Water Works appeal and will soon receive it's regular £40,000 donation from the Glastonbury music festival...

Given that 2 billion people lack access to clean water + decent sanitation it's great to see this issue gaining the support it deserves.

Things continue to get better as... tomorrow the BBC are starting a week of programmes exploring the role of water in health, education, peace + security...
