“One day I want my children to go to school and have a good job.” – Sloan, mother of two

Right now, Sloan and her husband are too poor to send their children to school. The unsafe water from this spring makes them sick.

Sloan and her two small children are playful. She kisses her son’s nose and he hides it in his sleeve. They are kind, but honest about their water situation.

Each day, Sloan takes a two-hour trip to fetch water from a contaminated spring that her village uses for drinking, washing, and cooking.

Although both Sloan and her husband are hard workers, they are trapped in extreme poverty. Their unsafe water adds to this poverty, spreading illnesses that are expensive to treat. Sometimes, they don’t have any money for treatment, and their children must go without.

One time, on her two-hour walk for water, she slipped on the trail and sprained her knee. A neighbor helped her get home, and she was unable to work for a while.

Sloan and her husband dream of a better life for their family.

“We have to drink this water because there is no other choice,” she said. “But one day I want my children to go to school and have a good job.”

With safe water, Sloan and her husband can save money on the cost of treatment for waterborne illness. Sloan can spend time working rather than walking for water, and everyone in Soeng Pir village can have a brighter future.

You can help Soeng Pir village today. Your gift will provide health training for each household, their own bathroom, plus a safe water source in their village.

Lasting change means more than just building a well. Local Lifewater staff will work house by house to share the love of Christ, teach healthy habits, and help families like Sloan’s spend less time sick and collecting water, and more time together.

Partner with a village. Your gift kickstarts a community water project.
Teach healthy habits. Small changes make a big impact on family health.
Build a well. The village contributes up to 15% for construction.

All gifts are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contributions are solicited with the understanding that Lifewater has complete control over the use of all donated funds. Our Board-approved policy is that all gifts designated for a specific project be applied to that project, with up to ten percent used for administrative and fundraising expenses. Occasionally we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
