World Water Resources

Water maintains an important symbolic role in Judeo-Christian scripture, theology, and sacrament, largely because our faith arose in a land where water was particularly scarce. For much of the world, that situation is their daily reality, with access and rights to life-giving water severely limited.

With water so crucial not only to our daily nutrition, but to our health and sanitation, it is a challenge to our Christian consciences to consider that nearly one billion people lack access to it.
