Linking Churches in the UK with a Clean Water Project in Ecuador
HCJB Global Clean Water Projects
Transforming communities through clean water and the Water of Life
In the UK we each use about 150 litres of water a day without even thinking about it. It’s available, it’s clean, it’s safe. But not everyone is so fortunate. 90% of all infectious diseases in developing countries is caused by unhealthy water. Everyday, at least 15,000 people die in developing countries due to diseases transmitted by water.
Clean water is essential for good health, but in rural Ecuador, less than 50% of people have access to water that is fit to drink, or to adequate sanitation.
HCJB Global Hands’ water projects facilitate communities in completing projects to improve their health. This is achieved through the installation of low cost appropriate water and sanitation infrastructure coupled with health and hygiene education programmes. We seek to employ Biblically based community development principles and we have not only a concern for physical health but also spiritual health.
