PCC MISSION MOMENTS World Water Day (March 22)

Worldwide, 663 million people live without improved drinking water sources. A lack of clean water is a significant development challenge. In areas of the world where access to water is limited, local Presbyterian World Service & Development partners are responding to improve water sources, build new ones and train volunteers to maintain wells.  Support to improve sanitation ensures water stays clean and prevents the spread of illness. PWS&D equips communities to build hand-washing facilities and latrines and educates members about proper hygiene. The results of this program are transformative and far reaching—clean water allows women and men to harvest crops, care for their families, expand their livelihoods and lead healthy, productive lives. PWS&D helps families access clean water and sanitation.

You’re invited to attend LADIES’ RETREAT(36th year) at Camp Douglas, June 12-15, 2017. Theme: “FAITH FULL”(based on the book of Joshua) and Speaker Rev. Paddy Eastwood. You are available by e-mailing the Registrar, Randi Kanski at randik@telus.net.
