COMBONI JPIC NETWORK
The News Service of the Comboni Missionaries – North American Province (NAP)
Comboni Press Network (CPN) newsletter provides access to information on global issues from Church and Mission-related sources. Our focus is on Justice and Peace issues, and on how the U.S. policies affect the Third World countries.
An estimated two-thirds of the earth’s surface is water. Yet more than 1 billion people (1 in 6 of us) don’t have access to clean drinking water. This kills more children annually than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined. 2005-2015 has been dubbed the International Decade for Action: Water for Life. Also, in February, Pope Benedict’s prayer intention was “Access to Water for All,” findoutmore. To further the theme: Visual Resources: You Tube; Circle of Blue video; and PowerPoint Slides.
