Are You Made Of The Stuff That Makes History?

This winter, WaterAid is reminding us of the power of this natural resource, which unites us biologically and physically. Clean water is a basic human need that transcends the countries, cultures and the kilometres between us. Just to survive, we need around 2.4 litres of water every day. Yet, while there is enough water in the world to meet everyone's basic needs, 663million people across the world struggle to even access enough clean water to drink.

Men United - A Team I Support Without Question

Men United is one team I am happy to support, without question. Sometimes we have to turn a blind eye to our friends little quirks and oddities, I know I did. My best mate is an Evertonian, I am a dyed-in-the-wool Red. And that's exactly what Prostate Cancer UK wants us all to do: get your friends together and do something great to beat this horrible disease that affects one in eight men.

Syria Is the Biggest Refugee Crisis in the World... And It's Not Going Away

The Syria crisis may have fallen off the news agenda, but it hasn't gone away. Every month around 100,000 Syrians become refugees. Again and again I was told the humanitarian situation is extremely fragile and critically underfunded, but there was enormous praise for Jordan - not a rich country by Middle Eastern standards, yet it is showing great generosity towards the Syrian people. This is an international crisis on an epic scale. It's a matter of global responsibility - Jordan and the other countries neighbouring Syria should not be bearing the brunt of this alone.

Free Nabil Hadjarab

Nabil was just 22 years old when he was sold for a bounty to US forces and taken to Guantanamo Bay. He has been held there ever since without charge or trial. The US has since admitted that he was mistakenly arrested. In 2007 Nabil was cleared for release. Then, in 2009, Barack Obama became President and promised to close Guantanamo Bay. Nabil - like all the detainees - thought that maybe, finally his time had come to be released from his indefinite detention. Instead, the President did nothing.
