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. Sub-Saharan Africa 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.
This year’s Water for LIFE goal began with an immediate need for 188 wells in 7 African nations. The goal is now expanded to include an additional 212 wells for a total of 400 new and refurbished wells in 2017.
Also this year, we are offering LIFE Filter Kits for the first time, providing immediate relief for desperate families in these areas. In cases when the harsh terrain prevents our drill rigs from accessing areas of need, we now can offer hope through the LIFE Filter Kits. They 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! These filter systems will help to break the cycle of sickness and death caused by unclean, disease-ridden water in places where our rigs simply cannot go.

Clean water is a blessing for life for people living in these areas. Thank you for your help and support as we work to provide clean water in the areas that need it most.
