Coffee for Water!

IWC coffee booth and barista at the Riversymposium raises funds for WaterAid Australia

The International WaterCentre hosted a coffee machine and barista at its trade exhibition booth at the 15th International Riversymposium in Melbourne last week for WaterAid Australia. In exchange for a cup of freshly brewed coffee, we asked for a gold coin donation for the cause.

The booth collected close to four hundred dollars. According to WaterAid Australia, “Four hundred dollars can pay for the construction of a tap stand providing water for five families (40–50 people) and enough cement to produce 20 latrine cover slabs.”
