Three ways water saves lives

December 6, 2017 • Worldwide

These small gifts can provide a family or community with life’s simplest necessity

A person can only live a few days without water. But in many parts of the world, access to water is scarce, and clean water is impossible to find. Many people, mostly young children, die of waterborne disease each year. This Christmas, for as little $25, you can bless a thirsty community with both a physical water source and the hope of living water found in Jesus Christ.

1. Provide Families with Household Filters

Some impoverished families do not realize they need to boil contaminated water, and their lack of understanding can result in illness or even death. Boiling also comes with a cost, though—it drains a family’s income by using up precious fuel resources. For $150, you can provide a family with a better alternative. Our easy-to-use biosand water filters require no fuel, electricity, or chemicals and can be used for years to provide clean water.

2. Bring Safe Water to Communities

After a disaster strikes, water sources that were once clean often become contaminated. People with limited food and no shelter are forced to drink water that is dirty to survive. Your $100 donation will help us provide reservoir, well, or rainwater storage tank, and other essential measures to protect water sources and prevent the spread of disease. Help a community in need who otherwise wouldn’t have access to safe water.

3. Give Safe Water

Give safe water to a child who gets sick from drinking dirty water. $25 brings safe water to one child.
