Matching Gift Doubles Every Dollar
Your partnership with Global Aid Network® (GAiN®), the humanitarian partner of Cru®, has a great impact on families in some of the toughest places on earth who have a most basic need for water — both physical and spiritual.
Lives of villagers from Zambia to Chad to Zimbabwe have been transformed because wells have been drilled or repaired nearby. God is working through your generous support to open hearts to the hope of Jesus and to establish new churches through our local partners.
Right now, you have a special opportunity to DOUBLE the impact of your giving toward clean water, thanks to a $315,000 matching gift!
$162,000 has already come in toward the match — so we’re halfway there! Now your help is needed to raise the remaining $153,000 — all to reach children and families with safe, clean water in Jesus’ name.
Whatever you give today will be matched dollar for dollar to drill new wells and repair broken ones for people in critical need of water.
Typically it costs $34 to give one family safe, clean water when a well is repaired. But thanks to the $315,000 matching gift, your gift doubles to serve twice as many families!
With support from friends like you, we trust God to enable us to provide safe, clean water for more people than ever before in GAiN’s 25-year history. Your contribution today — doubled by the matching gift — will go a long way to help meet this need!
Please continue your support today to help save lives and reach families with water and the eternal hope of Jesus.
54,500 People Say Thank You
More than 100 water wells were repaired or drilled by GAiN in Africa last year. Most importantly, 54,500 men, women, and children now have safe, clean water, thanks to the support of generous friends like you.
Three siblings from Zambia pictured here experienced numerous health challenges after their community well broke down. Their family also suffered economically because they could no longer sell vegetables for income. But now they have clean water for drinking — and plenty for their garden too!
Gaining access to clean water expressed the kindness of Jesus in other ways:
North Africans See God Has Not Forgotten Them
People like you helped repair a well for impoverished families in a rural village in North Africa. Now that the well is functioning again, the people have a renewed pride and hope for the future. And they are seeing that God cares for them and their needs.
Villagers Notice Christians Keeping Their Promise
In one Zambian village a man named Mubita shared about other groups who had visited his village but never returned to finish the work they promised. Mubita was heartened when our team showed up and repaired the well as promised. He saw the hand of God at work, and you helped restore his hope!
Teachers Can Teach Again
For months a school well in Zimbabwe, which serves 600 students and 60 households in the surrounding area, was broken down. Thanks to people like you, the well has been repaired, allowing teachers and students to return their focus to the classroom instead of searching for water.
Not only do people in these communities have reliable access to fresh water, they are also forming relationships with people who can tell them about Jesus!
