March 15, 2019 – Prayers for Children – To remind us of the importance of water, the UN made the 22nd of March ” World Water Awareness Day”. Our survival depends on water. Each person has a human and International right to water. Over 2 billion people lack access to safe water and for children – unclean water and poor sanitation are the leading cause of childhood death. (500 or more children die each day). In our communities, we can be aware of ways to conserve water and the current contamination of our lakes, oceans,rivers, beaches…We can begin by using less styrofoam that is now an overwhelming worldwide problem. Let us pray, bless, and think positively about how we can conserve water and save the lives of all people especially the children.
