World Water Day

March 22, 2010

Today is World Water Day. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noted that more people die from unsafe water than from war and other types of violence. He argued about the deaths due to unsafe water:

These deaths are an affront to our common humanity, and undermine the efforts of many countries to achieve their development potential.
Fortunately, there are many organizations working to overcome this problem. One of them that is doing excellent work is Living Water. Check them out. You can also follow them on Twitter and join the cause on Facebook.
