Advocate Today! You Make a difference!

Lutheran World Relief:

Tell Congress to Help Fill the Well too!

LWR Water Project in Bolivia

On September 20, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the Senator Paul Simon Water for the World 2010 Act, thanks to people just like you who stood up, took action and demanded that everyone deserves clean water.

Now, we need your help to tell your representatives join in the movement.

Passage of this bill would mean first-time, sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation services for more than 100 million people by 2015!

Clean water is essential for lasting development, yet one out of every five people in the world lacks access to it, with children suffering the most. Organizations like LWR are already doing great work ensuring that communities have potable water available and passage of this bi-partisan bill would ensure that millions more obtain this basic need.

Take a moment right now to send a message to your member of Congress and ask that they support this important and life-saving piece of legislation.
