Jesus Wells provide fresh water year-round, protecting communities from waterborne illnesses and sparing women and children from spending hours fetching water. Obtaining clean water is also vital for practicing safe hygiene and for supporting healthy immune systems, both of which prevent the spread of diseases.
Pastors serving near Jesus Wells are able to share about the Living Water mentioned on the well’s plaque. Providing safe water—either by drilling a new well or maintaining existing wells—is a practical way to show communities how much God and His children care for all people!
Salil’s Testimony“Our family is blessed both physically and spiritually. We are free from problems and sickness. We also met the Living God in due time. It is because of the people who have spent their money to drill a Jesus Well in my place. I have never seen them, but I’m always praying for them. Thank you very much.” —Salil, villager in Asia

Many people in the areas we serve do not have clean water and as a result battle waterborne illnesses—or even succumb to death. Made with simple materials, BioSand water filters remove 98 percent of biological impurities, providing safe water for drinking and cooking for a family and often for neighbors too! The clean water will improve health and hygiene and will give peace of mind—all of which are expressions of Christ’s care.
Aanjay’s Testimony"Not only were the physical water needs of believers and villagers met, but also our inner thirst for love of the Lord and for one another too are being met very strongly. While these filters and training are making an incredible difference in the physical well-being of the recipients, many are also gaining the peace and freedom found in following Jesus Christ." —Aanjay, a farmer in South Asia

More than a billion people worldwide have no choice but to go to the bathroom out in the open, which poses many risks, especially for women and girls who venture into open fields under the cover of darkness. Private outdoor toilets spare families from disease found at communal waste grounds and protects the dignity of men and women.
Iniyavan’s Testimony“Now, since I have this toilet built in my house, I don’t have to worry. My family and I don’t have to go to the tea garden for toilet, and it is very safe here. I am very … grateful to all those who donated the money, who thought about us and gave us all the facilities. Of course, my words are not enough to say thank you because you have expressed your love so much.” —Iniyavan, a laborer in Asia
For only $540, you will help reduce the risk of common diseases by providing a family with an outdoor toilet. Giving monthly or annually is the most powerful way to donate.
