WATER IS A HEALTH ISSUE
At any given time, half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from water-related diseases. In fact, water and sanitation issues take the lives of 5000 children under the age of five every day.
WATER IS AN EDUCATION ISSUE.
Water-related diseases cost 443 million school days a year. More than 150 million school-age children are infested with waterborne parasites that sap their strength, stunt their growth , and impair cognitive development.
WATER IS AN ECONOMIC ISSUE.
Billions of hours of labor are wasted each year just hauling water. Worse still, about two thirds of those lacking access to clean water live on less than $2 a day.
With the help of a matching contribution, every $1500 will provide a clean water well and the good news of Jesus Christ to a group of people that need our help! We can use your help!
