Observing World Environment Day, June 5, 2017

Medical Mission Sisters believe that caring for our Earth is a sacred call to action. Every year on June 5, we recognize World Environment Day, an event that urges us to get outside in appreciation for the beauty of nature. Sisters and Associates around the world support the Sustainable Development Goals that address issues of environmental health and sustainability, including clean and safe water, sustainable and modern energy, and climate change. Now, more than ever, we must care passionately for our Earth and its sustainability.
