Elena Marmo on Wateraid
Elena Marmo joined me in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her work on behalf of Wateraid.
WaterAid is an international development organization, working in over 35 countries. They provide access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
Marmo, a Parsippany native, told me about how 844 million people across the globe do not have access to clean water. “That’s about one in every ten people,” she states.
Marmo has visited Colombia and Cambodia to help spread the mission of WaterAid. Wateraid hopes to provide clean water to everyone, everywhere by 2030. “We’re on our way, but we’ve still got some work to do.”
Students from Montclair State University, Rutgers University and Ramapo University climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in May to raise money and awareness for the cause.
I was honored to work with Elena to spread awareness about this important cause!
