World Water day is March 22nd. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific topic of freshwater. This year the theme is International Year of Water Cooperation, – focusing on the crucial need for cooperation to find a median between the different needs and priorities and share this precious resource equitably, using water as an instrument of peace.

Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.”
— W.H. Auden

    I didn’t know much about this until I looked at some of the links you posted. I’d say WaterAid is my favorite.
