Access to Safe Water, It’s a Human Right!
On March 22, people around the world will join together for World Water Day which is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.
This year’s theme is ‘Leaving No One Behind,’ exploring ways in which people who have been marginalized or ignored gain access to safe water as their basic human right.
2.1 billion people live without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
For more than 100 years, the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers have been ministering to the poor and marginalized throughout the world. Over the decades, we’ve helped provide clean water for people by finding ways to harvest rain water with appropriate filtering systems, as well as spearheading projects for sand dams and new wells.

Please pray for those around the world who do not have access to safe water.
