Pure Water, Pure Love

Pure Water, Pure Love logo

For many people in the world, walking miles while carrying heavy jugs of water in order to make sure they have clean water is a daily reality. Many missionaries constantly run the risk of contracting a disease or parasite from the water in the countries they are in. This is where Pure Water, Pure Love takes action.

The primary goal of PWPL is to provide missionaries with water filters and the people they serve with wells that offer clean water, free from disease-causing microorganisms. With the help of hundreds of churches, PWPL provides thousands of water filters to missionary families and helps fund clean water projects.

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.

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.
