Australian Lawyer and Activist Mina Jolie has run 300 kilometers in Egypt’s Cairo, Luxor and Aswan along the Nile river as a part of her initiative “Run4Water” to raise awareness about water consumption.
Jolie is focusing on Goal Six of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which aims at ensuring access to water and sanitation for all.
During a press conference on Sunday, 46-year-old Jolie said that “Run4Water”, launched at the end of May, aspires to find real solutions to the global lack of water problem.
Jolie’s international initiative includes running 1048 miles in six different continents. She is set to run along the Nile river in Egypt, and other rivers in Brazil, China, Australia, China and the United Kingdom in only six weeks.
Jolie further added that if no real initiatives are taken, there will be a real global problem by 2030. Also according to statistics, one-third of the world’s population will not have access to water by 2025.
The Australian activist embarked on her run in Egypt on April 22; she stared with Luxor and Aswan and ended the run in Cairo.
Jolie has founded her organization “Thirst” in 2012 on the International Water Day, in order to raise awareness about the wrong consumption of water.
