How Water Wells Make a Difference:
Over 884 million people lack access to clean drinking water—that’s over 3 times the population of the United States! Because of improper disposal of waste, many water sources in developing countries are contaminated with parasites, chemicals, and diseases that cause over 3.5 million deaths each year. Communities are forced to continue to ingest the contaminated water because they have no access to clean drinking water. Funds donated to the Water Well Ministry are used to dig deep-water wells, which are protected from the harmful contaminants. Giving communities access to clean drinking water improves the over-all quality of life for that community. Water-related diseases are diminished. Food sources dependent on water—crops and livestock—are safer to eat. Children are healthier and women don’t have to travel as far for clean water. Help us give life to communities around the world by donating to the Water Well Ministry.

Or that 844 million people lack basic drinking water access, more than 1 of every 10 people on the planet. In 2020, People to People was able to build 13 wells in multiple countries around the world. The expense of digging a water well varies from as little as $1000 to over $10,000 depending on the type of well, the location, and the degree of accessibility. People to People provides resources for IPHC churches and missionaries to dig water wells, providing communities with clean drinking water for themselves, their livestock and for the irrigation of crops. The expense of digging a water well varies from as little as $1000 to over $10,000 depending on the type of well, the location, and the degree of accessibility.
