- Send out brief overview of the week to Non-Governmental Organisations and journalists to advertise the week

While there are no funds available from WASH support an international event, we recommend you try the following routes for sponsorship and donations:
- Request financial support from catering and food companies that are committed to salt reduction and who have no conflicts of interest, as well as from other funding bodies such as charities. We can provide standard applications which can be adapted for your work
- You may be able to offer some publicity on funders' behalf such as logos on leaflets, or exhibition space at events
