The world’s dirty secret.  The #1 killer of children.

The Riverside Church and Faiths for Safe Water invite you to an unprecedented event to unite all faiths under this singular religious symbol shared by all: Water. During this time of spring rains and renewal — faith leaders and educators, social justice coordinators and activists, interfaith leaders, NGOs, youth leaders, students, congregants and people who just care — please come for an entertaining and informative program of inspired stories, easy ideas and community-building activities, and opportunities to impact millions of lives. And make water the source of health and life for ALL.
