Water Well 1:1 Match Opportunity

“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.” Isaiah 12:3 (NKJV)

Water is life. It’s a necessity for our bodies to function, and is used throughout our daily lives. So when 663 million people around the world lack access to safe drinking water, we need to act.

That’s why we created Water for the World - our largest water well fundraiser ever - to drill 79 borehole wells in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Mozambique and Cambodia. These wells will bring clean water to nearly 60,000 people in these countries:

Sierra Leone – According to recent WHO survey, drinking water in Sierra Leone is scarce in most parts of the country, especially during the dry season. This has a profound impact on the country’s healthcare infrastructure, which is still recovering from last year’s Ebola outbreak. The WHO found that national water coverage is at 57% while sanitation coverage is estimated at a mere 13%. The statistics are much lower in rural areas where 40% of the population still practices open defection due to lack of access to basic sanitation infrastructure and facilities.

Mozambique – The country has recently experienced severe droughts in the Southern and Central regions of the country due to the El Niño climate pattern. This has affected agriculture and compromised water availability, particularly in rural areas where water supply coverage is at 35 percent.

Cambodia – Lack of water and sanitation is one of the biggest issues affecting the health of children

across Cambodia, where nearly ten percent of Cambodian children die before they are a year old. Many of these deaths are due to preventable, waterborne diseases or mosquito-driven ailments spawned by the nation’s poor sanitation facilities. UNICEF estimates that rural sanitation coverage in Cambodia is only eight percent, making it the lowest in the region and the second lowest outside of Africa.

Liberia - After 14 years of civil war, which ended in 2003, Liberia’s water supply and sanitation sector was severely deteriorated. According to the WHO, only 1 in 4 Liberians has access to safe drinking water, and half of all Liberians lack access to improved sanitation. Lack of clean water in Liberia also hindered the country’s success when fighting Ebola and will continue to affect its efforts to contain future outbreaks.

We look forward to providing you with updates on these water wells throughout the year.
