World Water Day

Today, March 22, is World Water Day, a UN project aimed at bringing attention to the lack of access to clean water worldwide. In observance, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) is teaming up with Rotary International to bring clean water and basic sanitation to communities in selected developing countries. Dominican Republic, Ghana, and the Philippines will be receiving an estimated $2 million for the efforts. The results of the projects in these three countries will determine whether other developing nations will receive similar aid.
