Mission of the Month

Water to Thrive

•More than 800,000,000 people in the world do not have access to clean water

•80% of all disease in developing countries is caused by unclean water

•Women and children in developing countries often spend 4 to 6 hours collecting water every day

•More than 3,000,000 people die each year from waterborne disease – many of them are children

•Every $1 invested in water sees in $8 return in economic development

•Clean water means children can fully participate in school

•With safe, clean water, as much as four-fifths of disease in a community can be eliminated

•$5,000 can build a well that will provide safe, clean water to more than 250 people for 20 years

Through the generosity of God’s people and St. Paul’s partnership with Water to Thrive over the last years, 18 water wells have been completed. What a blessing to help supply the life giving gift of fresh water to those who suffer without it.
