Providing capped water wells of safe, pure, disease-free drinking water

A Global Crisis

Water is essential to life. It’s a basic human necessity. Yet, almost 1 in 9 people on the planet right now still don’t have access to safe water.

844 million people are currently forced to use dirty, bacteria-infested water that makes them sick and robs them of their time, dignity, health, right to education, and the opportunity to live an abundant life. More than 840,000 are estimated to die each year from diarrhea as a result of unsafe drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene. For many children, it’s a death sentence.

 

Give Water. Give Life. 

But it doesn’t have to be this way! Often, just 80 meters below their feet are aquifers of pure, disease-free drinking water. By providing a deep-water well, we can help to break the cycle of disease and death and transform communities for a lifetime.

It costs $12,000 to transform a village through the provision of a deep-capped water well. You can sponsor your own well by donating to cover half the costs of a well or more and we will connect your donation to a specific village that needs a well. You will receive a well assignment report, telling you of all the details of the village.

Every contribution helps us get closer to drilling a well and transforming a village!

For just $12, you can give a person access to clean water and the Living Water.

 

Imagine... 

Well 1 

Imagine being a mother in a remote village where there is no access to clean water sources anywhere. All you have is a dirty stagnant stream a few hours away, being shared by livestock to cook, drink and use for your daily activities. You have no other option but to go with your eldest daughter every morning, along with a 20L yellow jerry can, to fetch just enough water for your family each day.

Well 2

Instead of being in school, your daughter walks for hours in the blistering sun, at great risk to her safety, carrying a water jug that weighs almost as much as she does. The worst part is that the water she brings home is dirty and contaminated, with all kinds of bugs that constantly make you and your family sick.

Well 3

Where you come from, children in your village die every month from waterborne illnesses. Your local witch doctor promises to heal you but nothing is happening.

Well 4

You feel hopeless with this injustice and witness those around you engaging in destructive behaviours. This physical, social and spiritual brokenness makes you long for hope and a better future.

Well 5

Because you are spending time collecting water and battling illness, you are unable to generate income to support your family.

This isn’t your story. This is the story of millions of women and children (especially young girls) around the world. Can you imagine this as your daily reality?

 

Help us bring justice to this reality.
