In a world where nearly 1 billion people don’t have access to a safe water supply, Catholic Relief Services approaches the problem in a holistic way. Our water projects in 40 countries are designed to address many different aspects of life, including helping people meet their basic needs for water, health and hygiene, sanitation, agriculture and education. In this photo gallery we recognize those whose lives are impacted by a lack of water, and highlight some of the solutions we use to improve the lives of millions of people around the world.
