For many people all around the world the act of drinking a cup of clean water is not a simple one. Over 3 million people die yearly from preventable water-related diseases. Half are children under the age of 5. What is more, water can be an unbearable burden to an already overburdened life. Every day, hours are spent hiking to wells or streams to fill jugs and buckets. Buying water from trucks can devour 1/3 of a person’s income, and it can still be contaminated.
This is the unfortunate reality for tens of thousands of people in El Salvador - but we can help!
This year our partner church, Palabra de Poder in Anemona, El Salvador is spearheading the construction of a water system that will provide clean, affordable water to over 800 people in their community. ENLACE has worked alongside this church, equipping them to work with local officials, community associations and hundreds of volunteers and helping them with the system’s design and implementation.
So far the church and community have raised over $19,000 and we have the opportunity to help them reach their goal of $36,000. For every $88 raised, we can provide clean water to a family, dramatically changing their lives and their future. Please pray about how you can give and help us spread the word to get others involved!
