As we approach the mid-year of our Mission: Water for LIFE outreach, it’s important to also reach the midway point of our goal to drill and establish 500 water wells in more than 15 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!
