Between the 16-19th of May 2013, Plumbing Solutions partnered with Building Spaces and the United Way, along with other great organizations and people to assist with renovation works at The Cyril Ross Nursery in El Dorado, Trinidad.
The Cyril Ross Nursery is an institution owned and operated by the Society of St Vincent de Paul. Its mission is to care for and assist children living with HIV and AIDS. The nursery houses thirty five (35) children and provides outpatient support for another 30 who live at their homes.
Plumbing Solutions is proud to have been part of this wonderful event.
International World Water Day is held annually on March 22nd as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22nd March, 1993 as the first World Water Day. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. In 2013, in reflection of the International Year of Water Cooperation, World Water Day is also dedicated to the theme of cooperation around water and is coordinated by UNESCO in collaboration with UNECE and UNDESA on behalf of UN-Water.
Plumbing Solutions joins Skills Able of the U.K. in the observance of World Water Day and the recognition that Plumbers are the heroes behind clean and safe drinking water.
