Our Mission: Water for LIFE goal is to drill and establish more than 500 water wells in 31 nations this year. Since 2000, 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 ...
- Waterborne diseases are the second leading cause of death for children under the age of 5.
- Nearly 700 million people lack access to safe drinking water.
- 60% of infant deaths worldwide are related to waterborne illnesses.
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 $4800, clean water can be provided for a child or an adult – in most cases for a lifetime – for just $4.80!
Clean water is a lifesaving blessing for today and a promise for a better, brighter future!
