World Water Day

As pro-lifers, we believe that the answer to the suffering and poverty experienced by many in our world is not to prevent individuals being born, but to work for a fairer distribution of our world's resources and better living standards for all.  The provision of sanitation and clean drinking water is central to a healthy and dignified human existence, so please do support Cafod's campaign to bring these basics of life to everyone, everywhere.

Today, Cafod tells us, is "World Water Day" - what better time to take action?  They say, "Based on current progress, Africa won't have universal access to clean water and safe sanitation for another 350 years. We believe that's too long to wait.  Do you?"  If you agree, click here to email David Cameron and (in Cafod's words) "call on him to lead the world in providing clean water and safe sanitation for all".

On the same page you can also find out about the various ways in which you can support Cafod's "Thirst for Change" campaign.  What is more "pro life" than water?!
