World Water Day is an annual international day to
celebrate the importance of fresh water.
Founded by the United Nations in 1993, March 22nd has become an internationally recognized day to bring attention to the unsatisfied need for fresh water in low-resource communities around the world.
The H₂O Coalition was founded in March 2016
to support the effort to supply fresh water.
We support the UN’s efforts in “addressing inequities, especially for the 'bottom billion' who live in slums and impoverished rural areas and survive without access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services.” Drinking water is a luxury that millions cannot afford, and the
H₂O Coalition is initiating projects around the world
to make water a freedom that all should have access to.
The United Nations and the H₂O Coalition both acknowledge the difficulty of water sustainability. At home and abroad, people are struggling to access and store clean, fresh water. We support communities like Mahlabaneni, Swaziland to make water sustainability a reality. Through our contribution to efforts such as MSR Global Health, we extend the reach of clean water providers where the need is greatest.
During the month of March, and periodically throughout the year, the H₂O Coalition will hold events in a continuing series called “Wine Into Water” in Woodinville, WA. Co-sponsored by the local wineries with net proceeds donated to H2O Coalition, these events are a reminder of our good fortune and an opportunity to raise funds to provide safe, fresh drinking water to those communities where fresh water sustainability is not yet a reality.
Please join us for an evening of wine, water, and celebration in recognition of World Water Day.
