    Well Project - Haiti

    Meeting Needs in Haiti

    Andy Birchfield and his team at the Children’s Hope orphanage in Jacmel, Haiti, currently care for 23 orphans. Soon, with the completion of another house, they will provide for 60 children.

    However, up until this past year, they could not supply these dozens of children and their staff with clean water. Though they were working to satisfy the spiritual needs of their community, simple physical needs were going unmet.

    Pure Water, Pure Love partnered with Children’s Hope to dig a well and install a filtration system that not only provides for the orphanage but also the entire community. The system produces 50 gallons of clean water per minute, giving the community of Jacmel their first taste of pure water. They have even trained staff and other locals to operate the system, giving the community a sense of empowerment.

    Well Project - North Africa

    Freeing Villagers in North Africa

    In a certain village in North Africa, an estimated 600 residents live on less that $1 a day and without easy access to clean water. The people must travel over 3 miles by donkey or foot to get to the closest water spring—one that is drying up quickly. Families must make this approximately 3-mile journey twice a day to barely quench their thirst. Some families who do not have a donkey or the health to walk to get water must drink from impure river water, which leads to disease.

    Not only does this village not have access to clean water but it also has not had access to the gospel. There has been little gospel proclamation in the area and, therefore, no known believers. Yet, the people are thirsty, not just for water but also for hope.
