“My life changed dramatically.”
When asked what it was like to have regular access to clean water for the first time, that was the immediate response of one grateful villager.
“Before my life was miserable…then one day you showed up with filters.”
After a water filter distribution that you sponsored, a woman who was constantly fighting off sickness discovered that her illness was due to bacteria in the contaminated water she had been drinking, not the chronic illness she feared it to be!
“My daughter had just given birth to a baby girl and had to buy bottled water. Not anymore.”
This mother expressed profound gratitude that her family did not have to stretch themselves financially to help her daughter get clean drinking water during her recovery after giving birth.
“Everyone is drinking purified water. Everybody is healthy.”
And it is all thanks to you.
This year alone, you helped nearly 250,000 people around the world gain access to clean water! It’s hard to overemphasize the impact that you have made through these filters, wells, and filtration systems.
One project in the Americas that you supported actually tripled the number of wells that they had planned on building because your generosity allowed for so much more! Not only that, over 350 pastors were trained in water filtration and they, in turn, are now able to teach their congregations.
We are so thankful for the way you have poured into these communities! Touch more lives like these by providing families with clean water and renewed life.
