Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people each year than all forms of violence, including war.* Nearly one in five deaths are caused by diarrhea, that’s more than malaria, AIDS, and measles combined.* For children under age five, water- related diseases are the leading cause of death.* *sources from UNDP, WHO, UNICEF THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS
Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.* A few years ago a child died every 15 seconds from drinking contaminated water, now it’s every 21 seconds. While we celebrate the accomplishment, we still have work to do. No intervention has greater overall impact upon national development and public health than safe drinking water and the proper disposal of human waste.
WATER FILTERS One filter can supply clean water for up to 20 people for 5-10 years. They filter approximately 5 gallons of water in under 20 minutes. EDUCATION Education is used to train our in- country partners how to use health and hygiene training as a tool to build disciples. THE SOLUTION
Education helps promote sustainability and community ownership. Every water initiative is accompanied by our Health and Hygiene Training along with the gospel presentation. Each training builds on foundational health principles using stories from the Bible. The program is designed to build relationships, allow individuals to see tangible improvements in their health, and experience the love of Christ. HEALTH & HYGIENE TRAINING
