World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. In 2015, World Water Day has the theme “Water and Sustainable Development”.
In 2016, the theme was “Water and Jobs,” in 2017 “Wastewater” and in 2018 “Nature-based Solutions for Water”.
As we celebrate this year’s World water day, we key into this scripture in; Revelation 21:6 “And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.”
We at Tivid Orphanage Home Int’l celebrates World Water Day #WWD by supply 100000 liters of Free Water to our host community from morning till evening. Join us to reach out too.
We all know that humanity cannot do without water and Safe drinking water is fundamental to healthy lives and prosperous communities. Every person needs at least 20 to 40 liters of freshwater per day for drinking, cooking, and sanitation needs alone. Yet some 1.1 billion people world-wide do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. As a result, many people especially young children become sick, some lives are shortened, and some die.
Half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water-borne diseases. According to the World Health Organization, each year, an estimated 4 billion people get sick with diarrhea as a result of drinking unsafe water.
Take full advantage of the Lenten season and give Well, Borehole, Sachet or even bottle water away to those who need it and ask for nothing in return.
GOD BLESS TIVID ORPHANAGE HOME
