Why is safe water so important? Because without it, children and their families must drink dirty water from swamps, ponds, and other potentially deadly sources. When children are sick, they cannot go to school. When adults are sick, they cannot earn the money needed to care for their families. In this way, contaminated water prevents families, communities, and entire regions from reaching their God-given potential.

We received this grim message recently from a pastor in Kenya: “The outbreak of waterborne diseases is frequent and has claimed the lives of many children below the age of five.”

Experts say that someone — usually a child — is dying every 20 seconds from drinking dirty water and/or inadequate hygiene. Each well you enable us to drill or pump you enable us to repair helps hundreds of people escape the waterborne diseases that either kill them or trap them in an endless cycle of sickness and poverty.

Donors like you, through Lifewater Canada, have drilled more than 1,700 wells so far while also rehabilitating more than 250 out-of-service wells, repairing or replacing thousands of broken pumps, building dozens of communal washrooms (toilets and handwashing stations), and holding countless health and hygiene workshops. But there is still an enormous need for more.

Provide the life-saving gift of safe, accessible water. You'll never regret it.
