Water is essential for life. Yet 663 million people across the globe don’t have access to safe drinking water.1 In many of these areas, water can be scarce, and locals are forced to travel miles, often by foot, to obtain it and then haul it back to their homes for everyday use. But the water is often contaminated, and the people forced to drink it suffer from waterborne diseases.
GFA is helping meet the need of water-starved people by providing Jesus Wells and BioSand water filters, thanks to which 37.5 million people in Asia now have access to clean water. These resources offer life and health to entire communities and testify of the Living Water.
But many remain in need.
Please join us in praying for clean water, and the people who need it, this month.
