Save the Date: Water for the Poor Act 10th Anniversary
The IHC is particularly pleased to share this invitation. The passage and of the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act in 2005 was a stupendous victory for all who believed that clean water and basic sanitation is critical to improving lives around the world. The IHC has been one of many voices advocating on this legislation from the beginning and remains a leading voice for greater awareness of the WASH needs of the poor in urban and peri-urban areas.
Please join WASH Advocates for a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act, the law that made safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) a foreign policy priority of the United States.
The program will feature a photo exhibition of successful U.S. funded WASH projects, brief remarks from key lawmakers about the importance of WASH to international development, and time for networking. The program will be accompanied by hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.
WHEN: Tuesday December 8th, 5 - 7 PM EST
WHERE: Kennedy Caucus Room, Russell Senate Office Building
