Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.

An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day.

More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world.

The thing that gets me about the whole issue of water is that through some organizations (such as causelife) it only costs $15 to get one person access to clean water! Below are just a few of the ways you can help.

Living Water International

For Living Water it’s all about Jesus. It’s about demonstrating God’s love, announcing his kingdom, seeing Jesus in the least of our brothers and sisters, offering a cup of water in Jesus’ name and proclaiming his gospel, the living water.
Helping communities create sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene, and Christian witness programs in partnership with local churches is just the best way we’ve found to do that. Why? Because the water crisis affects poverty, women, health and education—and for us it’s a spiritual issue.
783 million people lack access to an improved source of drinking water—that’s 1 in 9 of us. In the places we work, it’s more like 1 in 2 . Great progress is being made globally, but whole people groups are being overlooked—it’s the poorest people with the least political power that continue to suffer, and these are the people we are called to serve.

How You Can Help

* give a gift card
* advent conspiracy
* go on a trip
* pray

with love,

    This cause is dear to my heart! I can’t wait to get involved with this. We are linking up with an organization called Water for Life (waterforlife.org) in Rwanda. Those photos are simply amazing!

      I’m glad you are finding them useful Natalie. The more I dig into human trafficking the more I am overwhelmed with everything that is going on in the world.
