Last month, Rotary District 2452 had the honor of hosting the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Presidential Peacebuilding Conference in Beirut, Lebanon.
For generations, access to water, one of the world’s most valuable commodities, has united and divided communities around the globe. The conference examined access to water, sanitation, and programs supporting the development of sound hygiene practices as peacebuilding agents. The Rotary family came together with community members, industry professionals, and government leaders to explore opportunities to improve relationships and mitigate conflict through water, sanitation, and hygiene initiatives in the Middle East.
Here is a glimpse of the 17 February Peacebuilding Conference.
