Ryan Lochte campaigns for clean water and sanitation in India
Washington: American Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, along with fellow gold medallist Conor Dwyer, has filmed a public service announcement (PSA) urging support for greater access to clean water in developing countries, including India.
The campaign is for Water for People, which is a Denver-based non-profit organization.
According to Politico, the organization describes its mission as helping ‘people in developing countries improve quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs’.
They currently work in Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and India.
The organization is in the midst of a fundraising drive for their Time Well Spent challenge seeking to help women spent time doing what they love, the report added.
“Donate now to Time Well Spent and give women and girls time to do things they love,” Lochte said.
