In our fast-paced world 90 seconds can tick by quickly. But for people in the toughest places, those seconds represent lives.
Every 90 seconds a child dies of a preventable, waterborne disease. That is 960 children a day — lives that we can help save by providing access to safe, clean water.
Right now you can help relieve the suffering of children and their families around the world. Thanks to a matching gift, your support today will be DOUBLED up to $135,000! You will provide safe, clean water to more families — and give them the opportunity to hear about the eternal hope of Jesus.
Recently, the United Nations reported that one in three people do not have access to safe, clean water. And two in five people do not have access to a place where they can wash their hands with soap and water. Tragically, nearly 1,000 children die every day because of preventable water and sanitation-related illnesses.
You can change these statistics. Your donation, DOUBLED by matching funds, will provide clean water for more families. Together with partners like you, we are serving in places other organizations will not go — providing safe, clean water and sharing the hope of Jesus in the toughest places on earth.

Clean Water Wells Are Making Dirty Water History
Judy, a mother of three children, lives in Zambia. When the only well in her area broke, her family had no choice but to draw water from shallow sources of water nearby. Often such water is contaminated by runoff waste from animals. As a result her children began to experience health problems.
The broken well caused even more challenges as Judy’s family struggled financially. Without sufficient water they could no longer successfully grow vegetables to sell at the market and help provide for the family’s basic needs.
Thankfully, people like you stepped in to repair the well in her village — and dirty water is now history for Judy and her family. Today they have enough safe, clean water to keep the children healthy and to resume selling vegetables. Local staff teams help maintain the well in her village and have had opportunities to share the eternal hope of Jesus.
In Tanzania a member of the parliament sent a letter stating his gratitude for the water wells partners like you helped to provide in his country:
Our villages have had a big problem of no safe drinking water.
Our main sources had been run offs during the rainy season and open, hand-dug wells around the villages. The only means of getting drinking water from the wells has been by rope and bucket, which further contaminates the water as particles from the rope and ground get into water. The result has been the villagers suffering from stomach ailments from time to time.
Now with a new water point in place and working, the problem will be history and the general public life and performance will start to improve.
When you help people like Judy and entire villages gain access to safe, clean water, you help them understand that God cares for them and their needs. As a result they are open to hearing about the eternal hope of Jesus; many people come to faith, and new churches are established.
That is the difference your gift makes for people in the toughest places!
Yes, I want to give more families safe, clean water!
