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:
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.
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.
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.
