Water for the Poor

Donate to help transform lives


Families in developing countries spend hours each day simply fetching water from distant water sources. Often, these are streams, open wells or hand-dug pits, and they are also used by animals, which makes them breeding grounds for waterborne illnesses.

By providing sanitary wells and community water systems, we can relieve this burden on the poor. When safe water is accessible, illness declines, school attendance rises, and families can concentrate on thriving. Your gift of clean water will save lives and your compassion will share the Living Water of Jesus Christ.

Our Global Work

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating and ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2024, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year.
