“No matter how much food and health care is given to aid the poor in developing countries, it is simply a band-aid if they still drink contaminated water…. Lifewater International offers continual hope and health.”

“For over 40 years, Lifewater has been investing in local solutions through African leadership and enabling high quality WASH programming combined with African innovation; this results in impact and sustainability that will far outlast our presence there.”

“Stuff isn’t enough and Lifewater gets that. Development is more than hardware – the wells and latrines. It is the whole process of relationships, accompaniment and education. It is walking together, and Lifewater truly walks with the poor.”
