An unfortunate reality for the poor and needy

Water is an essential resource for life and living. Aside from quenching our thirst, water is also used for washing, cleaning, cooking and bathing. In the range of tasks we need water for in our daily lives, not having it readily available has a huge and negative impact on our livelihood.

Providing disadvantaged families with their rights to a vital resource

Communities living in rural or remote villages don’t always have access to water. Using this dirty water over a prolonged period of time, in turn, leads to infants and children getting sick from waterborne diseases and other more severe medical conditions. 

Apart from health reasons, water is also needed in agriculture, which is the main source of income for rural villagers. Without water, crops will not grow and farmers and their families will perpetually be stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty.

Saving lives with direct access to clean and safe water

Your generosity and kindness allow us to engage a professional contractor to dig and install a water well in Cambodia, Nigeria, and Bangladesh. We are also expanding to serve other countries in the African and Asian continents.

As a donor, you are entitled to receive a final report comprising a certificate of appreciation, photos, and documents detailing how your money was spent. It will also include the location of your water well, its beneficiaries, and how it has impacted the local community.
