How can we show others the mercy of God?
Give drink to the thirsty
Many of people around the world do not have access to clean water and suffer from the lack of this basic necessity. Here are some ways you can help.
- Make an effort not to waste water. Develop the habit of turning off the water faucet instead of letting it run while you are brushing your teeth or washing dishes can help.
- Learn about and look for ways to support the efforts of those working to help provide greater accessibility for this essential resource.
- At the Colégio Santa Maria in São Paulo, Brazil, Sisters Anne Veronica Horner Hoe and Diane Cundiff are doing their part to raise awareness about responsible and sustainable use of water resources. Sister Anne serves as principal of pre-school and elementary education and Sister Diane is principal of secondary education at the school. Each year students, teachers and employees study and experience water shortages. Students are learning to better manage the fresh water resources available and are teaching others best practices for the future.
