Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
The United Nations calls its 17 Sustainable Development Goals "the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." With a target of achieving them by 2030, the goals are all interconnected and address the global challenges we face.
Goal 6 is "Clean Water and Sanitation." As the UN puts it: "Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in."
This series highlights the stories of sisters around the world working to help communities attain clean water.
In some parts of the world, the Catholic Church operates up to 50% of health care facilities, and not all of them have access to clean water essential for preventing infections and other negative, but preventable, outcomes.
