Mike Mantel became the president and CEO of Living Water International in July 2010, but he has worked to bring water to the world’s thirsty for more than a decade. His first glimpse of the impact water could have on a community was in an African village: One small well literally gave life to an entire community. Before the well, most of the children got sick and many of them died because of bacteria and parasites in their drinking water.
You never know what your generosity might inspire! Back when Mike Mantel, now CEO of Living Water International, was just in his 20s, he worked for a man who sponsored a safe water well in Senegal. Mike traveled to inspect the work—and fell in love with the cause! Read more of this week’s Houston Chronicle article about Mike and the milestones your generosity have helped achieve, here.
