Fighting the Clean Water Crisis
World Water Day is March 22nd!
Thousands of people all over South Asia don’t have access to clean water. But because of people like you, Gospel for Asia is delivering clean, disease-free water to these families.
Put yourself in their shoes!
- 3.4 million people die each year from a water-related diseases.
That’s almost the entire city of Montreal, QC.
- Diarrhea is the second leading cause of death among children under five in the world. Around 1.5 million deaths a year, nearly one in five, are caused by diarrhea, which kills more children than malaria, AIDS, and measles combined.
- Globally, women spend 200 million hours a day collecting water. This is equivalent to building 28 Empire State Buildings each day.
A Jesus Well provides pure water for an entire village full of thirsty people for only $1000. With clean water, the health of the people improves significantly. Through the provision of clean water, villagers are open to hearing about the God who loves them and provides for their needs.
This little child has such a smile on his face! He’ll grow up drinking pure, fresh water because of the well in his village. Every person who draws water from the Jesus Well will learn of Jesus who offers them Living Water. These water wells do much more than just provide clean water; they create opportunities for people to learn of Jesus love!
