Clean Water Changes Everything

Why Water?

For people in developing countries, clean water changes everything.

Water is the most basic of all human necessities.

It makes all other progress possible, yet almost 1 billion people worldwide currently lack access to safe, clean drinking water. Each day, women and children walk miles to collect water that is so filthy, it will eventually kill members of their family.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Family Humanitarian can provide lifetime access to clean water for only about $2 per person.

How do we fight the water crisis?

Family Humanitarian embraces principles of self-reliance and sustainability, ensuring that projects continue to produce clean water for a lifetime and beyond.  Each community undergoes extensive education regarding the health and economic benefits of clean water as well as the mechanics and self-funding of necessary maintenance and repairs. When a community makes an investment in and takes responsibility for their clean water, lasting success results.

People who sponsor an entire borehole are directly connected to the water projects they made possible through pictures and video.  They get to see with their own eyes the miracles and profound impact brought about through their generosity.
