Build a well this World Water Day
Today is World Water Day – an international day dedicated to raising awareness about water issues and taking action to make a difference.
You can be that difference and provide clean water to a community in need by building a well in your name, or that of a loved one. It’s a wonderful way to transform lives for years to come, and we’ll even put a plaque next to the well with your chosen dedication on, and send you a full feedback report.
Call 03000 11 11 11 and give the gift of water today.
Don’t forget to join us over on Facebook and share how you’re marking World Water Day, and tune in to our live appeals on the Big Charity Show, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8pm on Sky 845.

Syria Emergency: 5 years on
In the past five years, around 3.7 million Syrian children have been born. They have never known peace, and some have never even stepped foot inside their home country.
It’s vital that we don’t forget the people of Syria, especially the children.
Penny Appeal teams have been helping Syrians in many ways, most recently in refugee camps in Lebanon. Here, hundreds of thousands of people are living in tents, with limited resources and no access to many basic necessities. We delivered vital items such as food packs, blankets, mattresses and stoves.
We have also provided emergency aid to besieged towns such as Madaya, and delivered hot meals to refugees arriving on the Greek islands.
With tens of thousands of refugees travelling through Europe or held at border crossings without food, clothes, basic hygiene items and shelter, we are exploring further aid delivery options so we can help as many people as possible.
None of this can happen without your support, so thank you, and please continue to donate. Your generosity can make all the difference for a whole generation of Syrians who are at risk of losing everything.
Donate now by calling 03000 11 11 11.

#TeamOrange runners go 13 miles for refugees
A team of 75 runners hit the streets of Coventry on Sunday 28th February to take on a half marathon in aid of refugees.
The #TeamOrange volunteers, including star of The Apprentice Mergim Butaja, raised over £43,944, which will go towards our Refugee Emergency campaign to provide things such as food, clothing and hygiene items for those fleeing conflict.
The #TeamOrange volunteer family also hosted a special Cheer Station at mile 12, giving runners a bit of extra encouragement for the final mile.
Haroon Mota, Midlands Fundraising Manager and #TeamOrange running coach, said: “I’m so proud of everyone! It was a really tough challenge, but every single person gave it their all.”
If you want to do something active to raise funds for people in need then join #TeamOrange for the Walk for Water challenge on 2nd April. We’ll be trekking up Mount Snowdon to build wells in Pakistan.

Coventry ladies get fit and fundraise for refugees
One of our dedicated #TeamOrange volunteers, Alycia Malta, recently organised a Ladies Fitness Extravaganza, bringing 30 women together for fun activities and a chance to help refugees.
Held at Eden Girls School in Coventry, it raised over £800, which will support people fleeing conflict by providing things such as nutritious meals, warm clothing and blankets.
Attendees took part in everything from Tabata and Zumba to bootcamp, dodgeball and dance, and sponsors and supporters included Clariotts Care Coventry, Positive Youth Foundation, Crepefresh and Krusty’s.
“It was great to see women in the community get together and do something different for charity,” said Alycia.
Find out about the Refugee Emergency campaign and donate by calling 03000 11 11 11. If you want to get involved with #TeamOrange to have fun and help people in need, then get in touch – there are loads of opportunities.

The donations and commitments made will go on to provide clean water to over 32,000 people and over 6,000 farm animals in needy communities through our Solar Panel Water and Power Centres. These centres use the sun’s energy to pump water from deep under the ground and also provide electricity for schools!
You can donate towards these centres or even build a well – head to the Thirst Relief page to find out more or call us on 03000 11 11 11.
