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.

Ten years ago I found myself in India. I was on a medical mission trip with other pre-med, nursing and med students. We traveled from central India to the far east borders between Bhutan and China. The experience changed my life. The day I said goodbye to India was a day that broke my heart. Now, all these years later, I am a stay-at-home-mom of two beautiful daughters and married to a man I love. It will probably be awhile before I get back to India, but my love has never faded. And my longing to do something to help only seems to grow over time.

So this year, as I contemplated my 30th birthday (Feb 7), I couldn't help but want to use that as a catapult to do something for India. My big 30th birthday/lifetime wish is to gather the funds to sponsor a well in India. To let the love of Jesus fill the people of India through the clean water that passes their lips and gives their bodies good health. Will you help me? Even if you don't know me, would you consider giving me the best Birthday present of a lifetime?

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.
