Lack of access to clean water is a global problem.
More than 1 billion people lack access to affordable clean water for drink.
1.8 million people die each year from waterborne diseases found in contaminated water.
The 'invisible poor' live with the parasites and infections caused by drinking the only water they can afford.
But a better solution is now available.
Water@Work invests in and constructs Community Water Plants (CWP) in impoverished communities in the developing world. A church in the local community operates the CWP, which delivers community-wide clean water that exceeds EPA and WHO standards.
The church institutes a program of heavily-discounted water sales to ensure sustainability and affordability. To encourage maximum impact, Water@Work provides ongoing community support and presence through: mentoring, water testing, government compliance, reporting, and secondary product support (i.e., detergents, juices, etc.).
Water@Work's ultimate goal is to spread God’s love through the vessel of clean water. Once operational, the Community Water Plants can be utilized to share the Good News. Water@Work supports the CWP-operating church in spreading His message.
Water@Work is the only mission group that I have worked with whose model creates economic development while taking care of a village's basic needs for clean water and spreading the love of Jesus Christ. It was very inspiring. Giving to Water@Work has allowed me to literally change the world for the better.
