The world is becoming increasingly concerned with water – the most precious resource – and the numbers are going in the right direction. We are seeing lives saved. But far too many people still lack access to clean water, and their lives are filled with heartache.
That’s why in this 17th year of Mission: Water for LIFE and our goal is to have 400 wells completed this year. Each well, with your help, will be a life-changing blessing to families and entire villages.
Without water there is no life . . . and without clean water there will be death. That is why we ask for your support today. We can help save 500,000 lives.
We’re glad to report that the average cost to drill and establish a well this year will remain at $4800, but this may be the last year we can keep it there.
Each well provides water for an average of 1000 villagers. This means that, for now, as little as $4.80 will help ensure a child can have clean water for life. We know not everyone can give toward a complete well, but every gift helps us take a step toward 500 wells.
LIFE Filter Kits
Our missionaries in Burundi have also identified several villages located in the mountainous regions that the drill rigs are unable to reach. For the first time, we are offering LIFE Filter Kits, which will provide immediate relief for desperate families in these areas. The LIFE Filter Kits come with a 5-gallon bucket, a hosing system and a reusable filter that can deliver up to 10 gallons of clean water per hour! This is a temporary solution for remote regions will help break the cycle of sickness and death caused by disease-ridden water. We need your help to provide 5000 LIFE Filter Kits for families in these areas as soon as possible!
A Note from James
Betty and I are both so excited about this, our 53th year of ministry! With the great goal of 400 wells, we know it cannot be done without the help of our friends.
Without water there is no life . . . and without clean water there will be death.
That is why I ask for your support today. We can help save 500,000 lives.
