Clean Water

You can meet people's need for water!

It’s more than just a well to her…  

Mabel lives in a very dry region of West Africa. She used to walk for miles each day to fetch water for her family. Or she could draw what little dirty water was available from the village stream. 

If Mabel tried to make the long walk to another water source, her body felt the effects. She suffered an early pregnancy loss after carrying her heavy bucket of water three miles home.

You can help families like Mabel’s get the safe, clean water they so desperately need.

And every well serves a minimum of 500 people — reaching them with clean water and the gospel. 

Faithful partners helped drill a new well in Mabel’s village. The first time she came to draw water, she met one of our local Cru staff members. He shared the gospel with her, and Mabel trusted in Jesus! She is so grateful for the new well and prays that more good things will come to her community.  

For people in the toughest places, you can prove more than just safe, clean water. You can also: 

  • Relieve their suffering — Clean water prevents deadly diseases such as typhoid, cholera and dysentery and supports healthy growth and development. 
  • Restore their dignity — A nearby well protects women and children from walking for miles in search of water. Children can attend school. And mothers can care for their families. 

  • Reveal hope — Every time a new well is drilled, our staff teams build relationships and share the gospel. New churches are often planted too. 

Your gift now will help transform lives — meeting physical needs and introducing people to Jesus and the living water He provides. 

Would you give generously to help suffering families today?

For people in the toughest places, your gift means more than just a well — it changes their lives and introduces them to the living water of Jesus that never dries up.
