Reach for Water

 

Why Water?

Nearly 1 billion people are living without access to clean water. Resulting diseases kill more people each year than all forms of violence; war included. Children are particularly at risk because their bodies aren’t usually strong enough to fight o the resulting illnesses. Every week 30,000 deaths occur from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions. 90% of those deaths are in children under five years old. The WHO (World Health Organisation) has reported 93.5% of water-related deaths worldwide can be prevented by improving water supply, sanitation and hygiene.

Vision and Approach

Clean water and community development is one of the key global ministries that Reach Beyond is involved in. Our Reach For Water team is composed of engineers, health professionals and technicians from all over the world, each one committed to improving health and sharing Christ through word and deed.

Our vision is to partner with rural communities to save lives, improve health, and share the gospel through providing access to clean water, appropriate sanitation, hygiene training and relational discipleship. We’re focused on those places where people are far from God. We equip communities to build their water system, facilitate design and implementation, and offer training so that they don’t need to rely on outside assistance for their health and well-being.

Isaiah 41:17 says “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.” Ultimately, our vision and mission is to meet people in their deserts and share life-giving water; physically and spiritually.
