Clean Water

We help you provide access to clean water for people experiencing shortages of safe, clean water and lack of sanitation and hygiene programs.

When you partner with Unto® to provide access to clean water

  • You make it possible to drill deep water wells, repair broken ones, and provide water filters to people without access to safe drinking water.
  • You relieve people of the most significant source of suffering on earth.
  • You help ensure people have the opportunity to hear about the eternal hope of Jesus.

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 nearly 30 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

Clean Water Stories

For people in the toughest places, safe, clean water is a precious commodity. How can something so freely available for some be so scarce for others around the world? Here are five tough questions about water answered.
In the toughest places people lack access to the safe, clean water they need to survive. Unto® works with local staff teams and community leaders in areas of need to implement clean water projects. Take a look at how a well is drilled in places where people lack safe, clean water.
People are hungry and thirsty — and the two go hand-in-hand. One of the best ways we can relieve suffering for families around the world is by providing them with safe, clean water so they can also grow their own food.
Water sustains life and every major system within our bodies. But access to clean water does even more — protecting and promoting proper hygiene and sanitation that is essential for health and dignity.
