Thank you for saving lives through clean water in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Mozambique. The following report reflects the four new wells that were drilled as the result of the generosity Celebrate Community Church this past winter through the 2016 water challenge. These wells serve 2,569 people. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.
“I am thrilled with what Celebrate has done – As you know water literally brings new life and hope to a community – You are now defying the statistic that every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease – no longer will this fact be true in Celebrate villages – girl children can now to go school and are not at risk for rape – women can now become literate – crops can be enhanced – vegetables grown. Also, these villages have had the opportunity to see the Jesus Film and many have accepted Christ – the local Wesleyan pastors are working in these villages and establishing churches. “ – Dr. Jo Anne Lyon
4 wells | 2,569 Africans with clean drinking water
The shortage of safe drinking water causes much suffering in developing countries. According to the World Health Organization 30% to 50% of people living in rural communities in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Mozambique lack access to even basic water service.
Clean water is necessary to maintain a healthy environment. People in these countries carry water to their homes every day.
World Hope International drills quality wells which last for decades. Community members contribute to the maintenance of the new well. A well committee was formed and given training to provide long-term care for the well. The people of these countries are praising God for this blessing.
13 years | 801,000 lives changed with clean drinking water
World Hope International’s well drilling program began in Mozambique in 2004. World Hope International has constructed 1,166 wells providing communities in Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Sierra Leone and Zambia with clean water wells. More than 800,000 people now have access to clean drinking water thanks to the generosity and compassion of people like you.
