The holiday season is here, and we, as WSSCC members, have much to celebrate. Globally, and through the National WASH Coalitions, our work in 2008 contributed substantially to advancing the goal of sustainable water supply and sanitation for all people.

We now have more than 1600 members, which is nearly twice as many as just one year ago. On the ground, our coalitions worked vigorously in 34 countries on behalf of the unserved and unheard. In all respects, the coalitions and individual members contributed greatly to the many successes during this International Year of Sanitation. The ‘year’ itself will act as a springboard to even more accomplishments in sanitation and hygiene promotion in the future.

WSSCC’s presence was thus where it is most needed: at the forefront on the issues and among the stakeholders. Your dedication, passion and expertise made it all possible.

On behalf of your fellow members and the Secretariat in Geneva, I wish you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous 2009.

Roberto Lenton
Chair
