Water

WE QUENCHED THEIR THIRST AND SHARED LIVING WATER

Cross International relieves chronic dehydration and fights waterborne illness by providing abundant, clean water sources in impoverished communities.

Water projects have many other benefits, too. The poor typically spend hours fetching dirty water from contaminated sources. Thanks to Cross projects, families we helped could turn on a tap in their yard or walk to their neighborhood pump-operated well for clean, safe water. As a result, children have time to go to school, and mothers can focus on other needs of their families.

In 2016, Cross International used gifts from donors to fund seven water projects in the countries of Vietnam, Haiti, Nicaragua and Zambia. Among these projects was an ongoing effort of the Evangelical Church of Vietnam to provide community wells in poor rural villages, and a ministry providing hand-pump wells in Zambia. Outreaches of this kind represent an important tool for evangelization in countries that prohibit pastors from preaching the Gospel openly in communities.

Kachere Water for Life

DKACHERE WATER FOR LIFE – ZAMBIA

In 2016, Cross International partnered with Kachere Development Programme to provide hand-pump wells in two rural Zambian villages. These wells provide a welcome source of relief for people who have long suffered from the effects of drinking contaminated water, especially vulnerable populations such as children, expectant mothers and the elderly. Through the simple gift of clean water, the Gospel is proclaimed in word and deed!
