Twenty years ago, realizing that millions of children are dying from preventable waterborne diseases, the United Nations designated World Water Day, to be observed globally in an effort to increase awareness of the world's growing water crisis.

Living Waters for the World has taken this call to heart, and encourages churches of all faith traditions to participate in an world water observance. Your observance can take place on any Sunday this year.

To assist congregations in lifting up the plight of those without access to clean water, Living Waters for the World has prepared worship resources (liturgies, sermons, children's talks) and educational materials that can be used or adapted to suit the needs of the group.
