Despite global efforts to provide water and sanitation solutions to healthcare facilities, almost 2 billion people worldwide depend on healthcare facilities without basic water services[1].  As a nonprofit Christian engineering organization that designs, builds, and implements water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) solutions, Water Mission is working to serve vulnerable communities through sustained WASH provision. Our work to provide WASH in healthcare facilities around the world includes advocating for patient care, equipping frontline workers, strengthening health systems, and providing engineering expertise.

Rose Berg-Fosnaugh is Leaving a Lasting Inspirational Legacy

By Joanne Lu

Rose Berg-FosnaughRose Berg-Fosnaugh is the definition of a changemaker. Throughout an impressive career that spanned various roles, Rose fought for equity and social justice in Washington and around the world. She did so most recently as the Director of Advocacy and Communications at the Chandler Foundation. And she did so up until the moment her life was tragically cut short by a brain aneurysm on May 13.

A Seattle-area native, Rose’s career began in journalism as a local radio editor and reporter. In 1991 she watched law professor Anita Hill testify before Congress during the confirmation hearings for Justice Clarence Thomas, whom Hill accused of sexual harassment. In that moment, she decided she needed to do more to create change for women in the world and made the switch to politics to get women’s voices into leadership. In 1992, she helped “mom in tennis shoes,” Patty Murray, win her first term in the U.S. Senate. Nearly three decades on, Murray is still a U.S. Senator representing Washington. She will be running for her sixth term in 2022. Read More

“Now it’s time for executives and policy makers to deliver a people’s vaccine that is mass produced around the world to ensure access to the greatest number of people in the shortest amount of time. JNJ can only produce the vaccine for less than 13 percent of the global population by the end of the year. Read More
