UNTO: Give Clean Water to Families in the Toughest Places

#0972981 - UNTO: Water Wells

Matching Gift Doubles Your Donation Today!

The United Nations recently reported that one in three people do not have access to safe, clean water. And two in five people do not have a place to wash their hands with soap and water. Tragically, nearly 1,000 children die every day because of preventable waterborne illnesses.

You can help change the statistics for people in the toughest places! By giving a gift today you can help transform entire communities, providing families with the safe, clean water they need.

Your gift will go twice as far thanks to an $80,000matching gift that will DOUBLE your donation to drill new wells and repair broken ones.


For people in the toughest places, you provide more than just safe, clean water. You also:

  • Relieve their suffering — Clean water prevents deadly diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentery and supports healthy growth and development.
  • Restore their dignity — A nearby well protects women and children from walking for miles in search of water and hauling an average of 40 pounds of water every day. Children can attend school. Mothers can care for their families.
  • Reveal hope — Every time a new well is drilled, our staff teams build relationships and share the eternal hope of Jesus. New churches are often planted too.

Will you consider giving generously so your gift can be DOUBLED by matching funds to help twice as many thirsty people in dire need?

For people in the toughest places, your gift means more than just a well — it changes their lives and introduces them to the eternal hope of Jesus.
