Metro: Metro Water Initiative: Second year of partnership with One Drop doubles number of the beneficiaries

METRO together with its customers in 22 countries and 18 global suppliers will implement the 2nd year of its 3 year collaboration with the Canadian-based One Drop Foundation. The project kicked off in June 2019 in the north-eastern Indian state of Bihar and aims at providing permanent access to safe water and sanitation to half a million people: doubling our original plan.

·  2020 is our 4th consecutive year of MWI and our 2nd year of close collaboration with One Drop Foundation

·  250,000 people in the north Indian state of Bihar will have sustainable access to safe water and sanitation facilities, thanks to ‘Project Sheohar’

·  An additional 250,000 people in the state of Bihar will benefit from the new ‘Project Boond’, ensuring sustainable access to water and sanitation

·  More than 20 METRO countries and ~20 suppliers support the METRO Water Initiative in the campaign anchored around the UN World Water Day on 22 March

·  A minimum of 1.2 million Euros will be collected for this purpose through the METRO Water Initiative. These funds will be matched by One Drop Foundation.
