Did You Know World Water Day Is March 22?

Did you know today is World Water Day? I didn’t, until just a few weeks ago when World Help and Gospel for Asia both sent me emails on the upcoming day.

Apparently, Google, was unaware, because when I clicked on their search engine, Anges Martin’s 102nd Birthday popped up.  I had know idea who Anges Martin was until Google informed me that she was a Canadian-American abstract painter. Scripture tells us, “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21. We in North America love to be entertained. Actors and actresses’ faces are posed at every check-out aisle, music and grammy awards are broadcast on local television, and vacation packages will take us to almost any destination.I believe that most of us here in North America have hearts that care about the welfare of our neighbors around the world. The media doesn’t often keep us apprised of the needs that are great in this world. I believe when we are informed our heart’s desire is to help our friends who urgently need our assistance.

The Lord has blessed those of us who live in North America with water. We need only to go to our sinks and turn the faucet on, and bingo, water. This is not true for most people around the world. This year 3.5 billion people will die because they lack clean water. Today in the world the leading cause of death among children under five is diarrhea–diarrhea kills more children than malaria, AIDS, and measles together. Around the world, women spend 200 million hours a day collecting water. Unclean drinking water is at the root of malnutrition, infant morality, preventable diseases, and low school enrollment–which leads to a cycle of poverty.

By building wells we can prevent water-related illnesses and save lives. We can not only grow healthier children, families, and communities we give hope. We show the world Jesus–who came into this world to give us life, to gives those all around the world life.Deeper_photo-pack_1 Deeper_photo-pack_2 Deeper_photo-pack_3 Deeper_photo-pack_4 Deeper_photo-pack_5 Deeper_photo-pack_6 Deeper_photo-pack_7 Deeper_photo-pack_8

If you have a desire to help those who do not have water at their finger-tips, please hop over to World Help or Gospel for Asia and be a part of providing clean water to our neighbors in need.

Blessings, Kasey

  1. When I lived/visited/worked in Uganda the water issue was quite a challenge sometimes. We had to boil water and put it through a cleansing container of some type. And we arranged to give clean water to some of the others. It really makes a difference. And we often don’t realize what others go through. Thank you for sharing so intensely. Hope it reached out to many.

    • Joanne, There are so many around the world who are in need of help. I turn on the faucet and presto water. So many do not have this luxury or even clean water to drink as you said. I hope this post gets shared with many–I think many people are just not informed of other’s needs. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your insightful words. Blessings, Kasey

  2. So glad you linked up today. I am sure many people aren’t aware of this situation. Our church does a lot with global missions and one or their focuses is providing water. We have learned so much through their efforts. It is amazing to see the fruit of their outreach efforts. Have a great day!

  3. Thank you for creating awareness and for sharing with Three Word Wednesday. I was delighted when I was recently able to be part of a book where the funds raised provided clean water for Africa.
    Blessings to you.
