Clean Water Cause
Marita’s Clean Water Story
Where we live, clean water is a given. If you’re thirsty, turn on the tap and clean water comes right out.
The truth is – we’re in the minority. Right now, 663 million people on the planet still don’t have access to clean, safe, drinking water. To put the clean water crisis in perspective: diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than wars and terrorism combined. That’s 2,300 children dying each day from drinking unsafe water. It’s no exaggeration to say this is a global epidemic.
At Liquid Church, Clean Water is our global cause – and we envision a day when every person on the planet has access to safe drinking water! That’s why we’re committed to sending financial support and manpower to countries around the world.
With the help of our global partners, we support clean water, sanitation, and hygiene projects in Africa and Central America. To date, we have drilled more than 280 clean water wells, bringing clean water to over 100,000 people in 9 nations. Together, we’ve donated more than $3 million to the Clean Water Cause!
