Every 15 seconds a child in a developing country dies of cholera or some other waterborne disease. The cause? Contaminated water from tainted sources — polluted rivers, improperly dug wells or open cisterns teeming with bacteria.
When a village does not have a well, women and children must walk for miles each day with large plastic buckets to collect water from the closest source. With your contribution we can build a well in a needy village, and your gift can help save children from dying from water related illnesses.
Your contribution will construct aqueducts and wells, and provide water filtration systems in impoverished rural communities around the world.
Your generous gift will be used to support Cross International’s Thriving Kids initiative through June 30 2021, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the initiative, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry and may be used in the following fiscal year.
