The average commercial property wastes enough water on the landscape in a year to provide clean water to about 200 families in Latin America. While we can't transport the water that we help save, we can bring resources from our water-conserving efforts here to help with the water crisis for these families.
As part of the 2013 Irrigation Association Annual Show, we're raising $5,500 to help provide the people of Nicaragua a clean water well. Every dollar contributed by our customers will be matched by Weathermatic until we reach the goal.
Living Water International exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience "living water"—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.
In 1990 we set out to help the church in North America be the hands and feet of Jesus by serving the poorest of the poor. More than a billion people in the world live on less than a dollar a day. At least 783 million people lack access to safe drinking water. Our work empowers communities through hygiene and sanitation education and sustainability strategies to keep water flowing, for life, in Jesus' name.
Responsible development means funding the whole program for the whole person. Gifts offered here go towards safe, sustainable water access, hygiene and sanitation education, and Christian witness programs in Nicaragua.
