Worldwide, 783 million people do not have access to clean, safe water.
This year’s Trócaire Lent Campaign is about the global water crisis. Drier climates across sub-Saharan Africa are leaving communities struggling without enough water for drinking, sanitation and growing food.
Enestina (9) is the girl on this year’s Trócaire Box. She comes from a small community in rural Malawi that has relied on a polluted river for drinking and washing for many years. The community depends on the unpredictable rains to water their crops, meaning they never know what food they can produce. Trócaire is working to change this.
For children like Enestina, access to water means better health, more nutritious food and more time in school.
