The Gift of Life

"While the body can survive without food for about five weeks, the body cannot survive without water for longer than three days."
Of the more than 6.4 billion people in the world 1 in 6 does not have access to clean water.
Roughly every minute, 3 children die, because of unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation. 
Clean water can immediately cut death rates in half.
No other humanitarian intervention has a more dramatic effect on life than access to clean water.

"I was thirsty, water is life, and because we don't have water, life is miserable."   ~ a voice from Africa.

"As many as 5 million people die every year of water-related illnesses.  This creates a no-win situation for millions of parents in our world today... they can watch helplessly as their children die for lack of water, or they can watch them die from diarrhea, because the only water they have is tainted."  
 Richard Stearns, The Hole in Our Gospel.
"He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done."  Proverbs 19:17
