World Water Day – March Parch

March Parch

Got a thirst for a new challenge? Not got a lot of time to give but have a lot of will power?

This one’s for you!

When: 1st March – 31st March 2019

What: To ONLY drink water throughout March. Nothing. Else.

Who: Anyone, Any Age, Anywhere!

Minimum Sponsorship Target: £155 (that’s £5 per day)


The 22nd March represents World Water Day. To celebrate this, Temwa challenge you to take on the March Parch and only drink water for one month.

That’s right, no coffee, no tea, no juice, no alcohol…just WATER!




We are lucky enough to be spoilt for choice when it comes to quenching our thirst. From fizzy drinks, to herbal teas, to hot chocolates with marshmallows and cream, to lattes with a vanilla shot; choosing becomes tricky!

But in Malawi, families often only have the choice between drinking dirty water, or drinking no water at all.

Water is a basic need and no one should have to deal with the life-threatening repercussions of drinking dirty water. To overcome this, Temwa distributes water filters amongst communities in Malawi. These simple filters have a huge impact and are enough to save a life by significantly reducing the risk of contracting of water-borne diseases.

Through your fundraising, together we can continue to provide clean water to even more communities.

One filter costs £5. Your sponsorship target of £5 for each day of March totalling £155 could make an incredible difference and will save lives.

Not only will we thank you, so will your body. Drinking plenty of water can help you feel more energetic, improve your concentration, support healthy skin and hair…plus think of all the money you’ll be saving by skipping that daily latte!
