• Rotary International Strengthens Commitment To Clean Water


    by Laura Coleman

    Rotarians around the world continue to underscore their commitment to clean water, drawing attention to the need for water projects worldwide in the wake of World Water Day, which took place March 22.

    More than 2 million people die annually due to unsafe drinking water and inadequate sanitation – an injustice Rotary International seeks to remedy by supporting water projects worldwide.

    The World Health Organization estimates that almost one-tenth of global diseases could be prevented by improving the water supply, sanitation, hygiene, and the management of water resources.

    Through Rotary’s Water and Sanitation fund, Rotarians contribute millions of dollars annually to help leverage local experience and professional know-how to help communities as part of its Clean Water Project. Via the International H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary International and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Rotarians further help engender the sustainable management of water resources.
