It's Just A Drop In The Bucket

Some of you may be hesitant, or unable at this time to make the commitment to sponsor a child, but you can still make a difference. 
I’m incredibly wealthy. I have 11+ access points to clean water in my house!! One of my responsibilities as a follower of Jesus is to be generous with the much that I have been given, because not everyone has access to the resources I have on tap. (Sorry, couldn't help myself)

In my country we can do this........

This is the reality for 400 million children:

Unclean water or lack of water is often a the root of many other issues in health, agriculture and consequently on many other aspects of people life. It is also closely related to poverty: accessing to a clean, close and reliable source of water a key conditions to a better level of life.
Consider the following:
·         Some 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water
·         2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation
·         Lack of water is closely related to poverty:
·         Almost two in three people lacking access to clean water survive on less than $2 a day, with one in three living on less than $1 a day
·         More than 385 million people without sanitation live on
less than $1 a day.
·         1.8 million children die each year as a result of diarrhea
·         400 million children have no access to safe water
·         4 million children will die each year from lack of access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation 


Give a Child in Need One of The Greatest Gifts – SAFE WATER FOR LIFE!

Compassion’s Water of Life, a safe water system goes to the heart of one of the greatest and most urgent needs in developing countries today – providing safe drinking water to children and their families.

Every day over 4,000 children are dying of water-related diseases such as cholera and typhoid that are easily preventable. Many more are suffering sickness, diarrhea and acute stomach pains – illnesses that stop children going to school and growing up into healthy adults.

When you give to Compassion's Water of Life program, you are not only giving safe drinking water, you are protecting a child from life-threatening diseases and allowing that child to go to school, to dream and reach their full potential.

Your donation of $55 provides:

Compassion's Water of Life system – safe water for life (over 1 million gallons) for a child and their family in developing countries.

Education on improving hygiene and sanitation
Support for improving community water sources where needed.

Each tax-deductible gift of $55 will provide a complete Water of Life system to a child and his or her family. Consider a gift of $55... $110... or even $165!
