Congress: Help the World Get Clean Water

    1. Sponsored by

      Mercy Corps

It’s easy to take water for granted when it pours from the tap. But across the globe, thousands of families struggle every day to find clean and safe drinking water. Their lives depend on it – in more ways than one. Because when people have a safe and reliable water source, they can prevent deadly disease, grow more food, raise stronger animals, avoid violent conflict, and spend more time pursuing an education and supporting themselves and their families.

In the days to come, Congress will take up important legislation that will help 800 million people around the world get access to clean and safe drinking water. The Water for the World Act will ensure our government can continue to lead the way in helping water get to the people who need it.

Tell your Member of Congress to fight for life-saving access to clean water and sanitation around the world.

      “ Anything else you're interested in is not going to happen if you can't breathe the air and drink the water. Don't sit this one out. Do something. You are by accident of fate alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet.” ~Carl Sagan

      I think that rich citizens and political leaders should read the Bible (Matthew, chapter 25, verses 31-46 ).
