You can Meet Needs Around the World

Shortages of safe, clean water and lack of sanitation and hygiene programs create the most significant source of suffering on earth. Unto works with community leadership in areas of need to develop and carry out clean water and sanitation projects.

As the humanitarian ministry of Cru®, Unto has leveraged strategic global partnerships to relieve suffering through our Clean Water Program:

  • For more than 25 years
  • In more than 75 countries
  • With access to Cru’s 190-country network

Partnerships with people like you make it possible for Unto to provide humanitarian assistance and coaching to our Cru national partners, giving them access to people who might otherwise be unreachable. 

In many cases humanitarian aid is the main reason authorities allow ministry to continue in some of the toughest places on earth.

Clean Water Wells

To prevent use of water sources carrying water-borne disease, Unto drills deep, water wells,  repairs damaged wells, and trains on well maintenance and repair to provide access to clean water.

Sanitation and Hygiene

To help strengthen communities Unto provides access to clean water through water filters and training in proper hand washing, human waste disposal, and water treatment.

Water Filters

Lives are Changed

Water is freedom for people living in Chad – one of the driest countries on earth. Watch the story of Maysa and how access to clean water brought her family new hope.

For I satisfy the thirsty person and feed all those who are weak.
Jeremiah 31:25

Freedom to Life

“Before we had a water well in our village, there were only two things we could do,” she said. “We could walk 7 kilometers (4.5 miles) to try to get clean water in another village and carry it back. Or we could drink dirty water if we could find it in the hills.” But all this changed with a new well.
