WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY - wishing all our partners, colleagues, friends and everybody working towards a healthier environment a wonderful day! "Our work is full of challenges and sometimes it can be very discouraging. It is possible to lose heart and feel as if we are waging a lonely struggle. It seems reality is overwhelmingly against us - no matter how many liters of wastewater we treat and to how many people we preach. If you ever find yourself with such thoughts remind yourself that there are many who are struggling along with us, who share our passion, our commitment and our vision for a cleaner environment. So today we look at others with whom we have made common cause, others who work like us – on small problems, in their own worlds, others who share our dilemmas, confusions, and yet keep trying. We look at others today so we can draw a deep breath of inspiration and keep moving forward in those moments of doubt. "
