Princess Zama-Zulu Shange
“I am honored to be an ambassador for water, air, and food for all. I believe it is essential for everyone to have access to water. Without water, there would not be any food.
If everyone had access to water there would be no hunger.
On behalf of the Water Air Food Awards, it is a pleasure to see so many supporting our cause. I believe it is our duty to help those who are less fortunate than we”.

“I am proud to be part of WAFA in supporting those making strides to improve our world.
Drinkable water, breathable air, edible food – these things aren’t meant to be a luxury, they’re a necessity. Imagine your life without it – this is the reality for people all over the world, and they need our help. WAFA is awarding the best sustainable projects, and your support is making it possible to take action and make our planet and our children healthy”.
