Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land. Proverbs 25:25
LIFE Outreach is excited to enter its 17th year of Mission: Water for LIFE with plans to drill 500 new water wells in more than 15 nations this year.
Since 2000, Mission: Water for LIFE has helped more than 5 million people gain access to clean drinking water.
The need for clean water is still so great . . .
- Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a waterborne illness.
- Waterborne diseases are the second leading cause of death for children under the age of 5.
- Nearly 800 million of the world’s poor lack the resources to drill deep for clean water.
Each new well drilled and established by Mission: Water for LIFE will, on average, provide 1000 people in the villages and surrounding areas with disease-free drinking water. While the average cost of a new or restored well remains $4,800, clean water can be provided to a child or an adult – in most cases for a lifetime – for just $4.80!
Clean water is a life-saving blessing for today and a promise for a better, brighter future!
