I've been struck recently by the importance of water and how vital it is to life. Some say freshwater is the "new oil" as it is increasingly becoming the most critical scarce resource in our world. As it is, many areas around the world do not have access to clean, safe water. Lack of access to clean, safe water leads to poor health and poverty, and keeps children from attending school when they must walk for miles to obtain it each day.
Recently I was given $100 by Newsong LA Church with the challenge to invest the money in God's Kingdom. I am using this money to provide clean, safe drinking water to a village community in South Sudan. This area is in great need as it is currently recovering from decades of civil war.
With your help, I would like to raise $2500 to help fund an entire well project for a village in South Sudan. I am partnering with two agencies that are actively working in this area: The Water Project (http://thewaterproject.org/wells_for_sudan.asp) and Water Harvest International (http://www.whiwater.org/). I encourage you to check out their websites to learn more.
Would you like to join me in supporting this cause? A donation of any amount, be it $1 or $100, will go a long way in providing clean, safe water to those who need it.
Let's make it happen!

Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
