Lifewater Water Icon

A Christian water charity you can trust.

Lifewater is a Christian clean water organization. For more than 40 years, we’ve been bringing clean water, improved health, and hope to vulnerable women and children living in extreme poverty.

Backed by data, our Healthy Village model is field tested and proven to create lasting change. It involves everyone–from the mother in the village to donors like you who make it all possible.
