Water for South Sudan supports the Senator Paul Simon Water for the World Act (H.R. 2901). We urge you to join us in supporting the bill which will improve the well-being, education, economic opportunity, safety and dignity of 2.5 billion people in the world who live without a basic latrine every day. By improving USAID’s focus on the poorest of the poor and the countries and communities suffering most from water-related diseases, like under-nutrition and pneumonia, Water for the World will save many lives. Most importantly, it will use current funding for water, sanitation and hygiene better.
Help WFSS and all organizations working to bring clean water to people in need. Call your member of Congress at 202-224-3121 and say you want to support efforts already underway to solve the global water, sanitation, and hygiene crisis. Tell them you are a supporter of Water for South Sudan and urge them to act on this issue.
The Water for the World Act aims to modify the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act (passed in 2005) and improve the efficiency with which the U.S. gives foreign aid for global safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). This is especially important when potential budget cuts could affect these programs.
