Precious Water

Antonia Garcia Zuniga of Matagalpa, Nicaragua proudly displays a glass of clean drinking water. In developed countries, people need only turn on the tap and out comes a seemingly limitless supply of clean, healthy water. But for millions of people around the world, clean water is a luxury and often hard to come by.

Antonia is one of thousands of residents who receive help from the Mi Cuenca (My Watershed) project, led by Catholic Relief Services. Through Mi Cuenca, CRS provides water filters and other purification supplies, and helps install small-scale irrigation systems. It also encourages community leaders to advocate for responsible water policies. Photo by Rick D’Elia for CRS
