What your generosity has done

Since our founding in 2007, we’ve been working hard to help bring communities access to clean water & we’ve made some amazing progress thus far. When we first started, the UN estimated that 1.1 billion people lacked basic access to clean water. Today that number has decreased drastically to 841 million. We’re on a mission to close that gap entirely, but we couldn’t have made it this far without YOU!

Central African Republic

MAMBERI-KADEI DISTRICT

The Central African Republic (CAR) is home to almost 6 million people and counting. Of those 6 million people, 70% still don’t have access to a clean, reliable water source.

Your generosity is changing this statistic. 

Our team, along with closely related partners, were sent out into the communities to update and repair old and damaged boreholes and wells. After much needed repairs were completed, new wells were then developed and drilled, and locals were then trained to maintain these new water sources providing long lasting water resources as well as ongoing economic opportunities.

Our ground team’s activities focused on the repair of older and broken boreholes. The team coordinated closely with the District Water Department to select boreholes in the most needed communities.  Major repairs were completed to meet the communities needs and restore life through water.

To ensure future sustainability of the boreholes, our team facilitated the formation of a Water User Committees (WUCs), comprised of local community leaders. The WUCs collect fees for maintenance of the borehole each month, ensuring that the area is kept clean, well maintained, and free of livestock.

SAN JUAN DISTRICT

The people of this community used to fetch water from a little lake which was about 100 meters away of the community. Sometimes they would have to walk more than 100 meters to get water from a river. Both sources had been contaminated because they used to wash their clothes in these sources.

The people in this community are very humble and kind. Their houses are made with wood, straw, and iron. The men fish and find side jobs. The women do house work and the kids go to school.

“The water well that was drilled now provides clean water to over 400 people every day.  It’s a miracle.” -Toribio Conquinche, Community Leader

The villagers find it very difficult to obtain fresh drinking water as the only water source is not easily accessible. They get their water from one bore well which is not sufficient to cater to the needs of all the villagers. Fetching water for their daily needs becomes a great challenge.

The water is not available easily as people have to wait in long queues. The women who do most of the household work in addition to working elsewhere struggle with the limited amount of water they are able to attain.

“Pastor Alexander made a special request to the Living Water project to help the village by providing a water source. The team was sent to survey the land and a bore well was successfully dug and installed in this village.” – Project Lead, Living Water

Most community members earn a living by farming or running a small business. When the team arrived, the community was utilizing a water source that was unable to meet all of their water needs.

Because of this and the community’s practice of open defecation, families were suffering from cholera, diarrhea and severe dehydration.

During the team’s stay, the community assembled a water committee consisting of five men and two women who assisted the team with the water project whenever possible and guarded the team’s equipment during the night. The nearest school is located in the community whose students, teachers, and administrative personnel all have access to the new, safe water source.

Where your giving can help us go

Imagine a world where children no longer become ill due to unclean water. Where kids can spend their time attending school instead of walking to collect water. Where women in developing countries have the time to start businesses. Where clean water is a right, not a privilege. Where humanity decides to help humanity. Where generosity changes us all. Our Vision is to see the clean water crisis end in our lifetime.
