Since the Water for LIFE outreach began in 2000, your support has helped provide more than 5000 water wells for people in desperate need of clean water. However, the global need for clean water is still enormous. Nearly 700 million people still lack access to safe drinking water, and waterborne diseases are one of the leading causes of death for children under the age of 5. The Sub-Saharan African region is one of the most affected areas in the world, and we are asking for your support as we continue to drill wells to provide this part of the world clean water.
We begin our 18th year of Water for LIFE with an immediate goal of 188 wells in 7 African nations. Our mission teams have identified 188 remote villages that are in urgent need of clean, disease-free water.
Our missionaries in Burundi have also identified several villages located in mountainous regions that the drill rigs are unable to reach. For the first time, we are offering LIFE Filter Kits, which will provide immediate relief for desperate families in these areas. The LIFE Filter Kits come with a 5-gallon bucket, a hosing system and a reusable filter that can deliver up to 10 gallons of clean water per hour! While this is a temporary solution for clean water in remote regions, the filter systems will help to break the cycle of sickness and death caused by unclean, disease-ridden water. We need your help to provide 5000 LIFE Filter Kits for families in these areas as soon as possible!
Clean water is a blessing for life for people living in these areas. Thank you for your help and support as we work to bring clean water to the areas that need it most.
