On Sunday, the 16th of April 2023, Wanlov and Deborah Vanessa swam in the River Volta to raise awareness for the #livingwaterswim campaign.
Wanlov swam an impressive 3km without taking a break, while Deborah Vanessa swam 1km under the same conditions. Their determination and commitment to the cause are truly commendable.
The Korle Lagoon, located in the heart of Accra, Ghana, is one of the most polluted bodies of water in the Africa. The lagoon has been contaminated with waste from factories, homes, and hospitals, leading to serious health risks for those living nearby. The #livingwaterswim campaign aims to raise awareness about the issue and work towards a cleaner and safer environment for everyone.
Wanlov and Deborah Vanessa’s swim in the River Volta not only shows their support for the campaign but also highlights the importance of clean water for our health and wellbeing.
Water pollution is a serious problem that affects millions of people around the world, and it’s crucial that we all take action to protect our water sources.
Their efforts are a reminder that we all have a role to play in creating a better future for ourselves and the generations to come.
By taking small actions like reducing our plastic use, properly disposing of waste, and supporting campaigns like #livingwaterswim, we can all contribute to a cleaner and healthier planet.
