Clean Water for Everyone!’
We are lucky because we can have clean, safe water just about any time we want it. We don’t have to spend our day walking miles with heavy buckets or wonder if we will have a clean glass of water to drink. Children all over the world carry and use water from a hand-dug well filled with dirty water that often makes them sick.
Now, thanks to Catholic Relief Services (CRS), in partnership with several other world organizations, a program called WASH will help build better access to clean water in communities that need it most and teach people how important it is to wash their hands. WASH will help dig new, modern wells so children and their families can drink and wash in water that doesn’t make them sick. A new well also means children don’t have to spend their day carrying water or share the water with animals that carry disease; all of which helps kids concentrate on their schoolwork and be successful students.
The money we gather here at Maker Fun Factory Totally Catholic VBS will support the work of our Catholic Church and CRS so that families and communities from around the world prosper.
