Monday, March 11
In one day, it is estimated that more than 152 million hours of women & girls’ time is consumed for the most basic of human needs—collecting water for domestic use. Millions of women & children in the developing world spend untold hours daily, collecting water from distant, often polluted sources, then return to their villages carrying their 40 lb. jerry cans on their shoulders.
PRAY: Each day of this week, read this Bible verse as a family and add any special intentions.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” -Matthew 25:35-36
ACT: Often the women & children who spend their days collecting water have badly damaged or no shoes. Donate $.25/per pair of shoes in your house.
