"We have come together from all sectors of society, beyond borders to commit ourselves to form an enduring partnership for living water and we call upon every world citizen to do the same. Our religious and philosophical traditions teach us that we are one human family, one Earth community with one destiny. We form one body, and when one part of the body aches, all other parts feel the pain. We must internalize this innate human sensitivity in concrete actions in the coming decades to ensure that pure water and sanitation will be in reach of every member of the human family."
Rabbi Awraham Soetendorp
