- Opportunities to hear about the eternal hope of Jesus.
We want to share an eye-opening story with you about Maysa and how access to clean water changed her life:
“Before we had a water well in our village, there were only two things we could do,” said Maysa, a wife and mother of a young son in the African nation of Chad. “We could walk 7 kilometers (4.5 miles) to try to get clean water in another village and carry it back. Or we could drink dirty water if we could find it in the hills.”
Both were terrible options. Carrying large canisters of water such a great distance was nearly impossible, as they grew heavier by the minute. And drinking dirty water was almost unthinkable for Maysa, who shared:
“Many of us experienced illness due to dirty water, such as diarrhea, stomach pain, and skin diseases.”
Here’s how caring support from partners like you changed everything for Maysa’s family — and her village.
“People from GAiN came to help us,” Maysa said. “They worked with local drillers to make a well here. They also put in a solar-power pump, tanks to hold the water, and two spigots. It is truly amazing. We have a source of clean water, a very abundant source.”
Your support helps express the kindness of Jesus in the toughest places on earth — in villages like Maysa’s — by relieving suffering, restoring dignity, and revealing hope. This is the kind of life-changing impact you can make with your gift today. By responding now, your contribution will be doubled by the matching gift. When you give water, you give life!
