Responsible development means funding the whole program for the whole person.

Your gift will bless the people we serve with safe, sustainable water access, hygiene and sanitation education, and Christian witness programs to demonstrate the living water—the gospel of Jesus Christ. Gifts offered here are used at the discretion of Living Water International.

The McAtee Family is raising $50,000 to give the gift of clean water the people of Kenya in the name of Jack McAtee, who has gone on to be with the Lord at the tender age of 27. Go to: www.findjackmcatee.com for the entire story about Jack, an incredible son of the Living God, with a heart as tender as a flower for the Lord. We would like to build multiple wells in Jack's name because he loved Living Water International, its Mission to bring not only clean drinking water, but also the love and truth of God and Jesus to a third world country.

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 663 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.
