The Water for the Poor Act- 10th anniversary celebration

WASHplus is proud to participate in the 10th Anniversary celebration of The 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 10th Anniversary Celebration was held on December 8, 2015 at the historic Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Office Building. The event was attended by advocates, supporters, donors, funders, and implementers of WASH programs. Welcoming remarks were made by WASH Advocates’ John Oldfield, followed by inspiring speeches from Patti Simon, wife of late Senator Paul Simon, Senator Dick Durbin, Senator Earl Blumenauer, and Congressman Earl “Judge” Poe.

WASHplus exhibited two posters: on our WASH projects around the world, and on SPLASH, our WASH in Schools project in Zambia.
