FFffffffffffFirehouse Wells exists for the sole purpose of providing clean drinking water to the country of Ghana while sharing the love and Word of Jesus Christ to those served.
1 in 8 people do not have access to clean water.
1 out of every 5 deaths in children under the age 5 is due to unclean water.
Nearly 80% of illness in developing countries is due to unsafe water.
Unsafe drinking water in the number one killer in the world. It kills more people than AIDS, acts of violence and even war. The depth unclean water reaches is hard to fully comprehend. However, ALL of this is preventable.
To give you an idea - the average American family of 4 can use up to 400 gallons a day. The water consumed is by simply turning on the water faucets, washing dishes or clothes, and flushing the toilet. The average person in a developing country typically has to walk several miles one way to only get about 5 gallons of unclean water.
There is plenty of water in developing countries; however the average family lives on less than $2 dollars a day. They cannot afford to drill wells that cost $6,000-$10,000 a piece.
The problem is large, but we have the solution. Jesus has called us all to serve.
Will you join us in putting an end to a simple problem?
