Around the world, families in remote, rural communities desperately need reliable sources of safe, clean water. For example, in rural areas of Nicaragua, filthy latrines leak pollutants into the water supply of many families, causing their children to get sick.
Today, you can help end this suffering by supporting our current effort to supply these communities in Nicaragua and others around the world with clean, reliable drinking water sources.
Martha Irene Vargas Sánchez doesn’t know what it is like to have a ready supply of clean water to drink. To drink, bathe and cook, she and her family rely on water from shallow, hand-dug wells that are full of contaminants. When the dry season comes, her situation is worse because even those water sources dry up. “With a shovel or by hand, we drill it a little bit until the water comes out,” Martha explained.
She believes that gaining access to a clean, dependable water source at home would change her family’s lives dramatically. “To have drinking water here in our house would be the most fabulous thing that could happen to us. It would be something wonderful because we have difficulties with the wells and we have to carry water for a long time. With our own faucet, the situation would be different… everything would be calm.”
Martha hopes her son Jonathan will grow up with clean water. Your support will help make the dream of clean water a reality for many mothers like her.

When families gain access to clean water, their lives naturally improve. More than just water projects, these initiatives revitalizes downtrodden communities, restoring hope, inspiring change, providing knowledge and resources, and even increasing families’ income-generating power.
In Nicaragua, for instance, we’re working closely with our longtime ministry partner to drill wells and professionally install water systems in six communities. The project will bring more than 1,442 households fresh, clean water for the first time! With these new accessible water systems these families will have time and energy to invest in other areas of life, such as education, running a small business, tending crops and participating in Church activities.
Our support for this water project and others worldwide depends on your prayers and generosity.
