Clean Water

The Need for Water

The United Nations and World Health Organization estimate that 1.7 million deaths each year from waterborne diseases such as diarrhea are preventable through clean water, safe hygiene practices, and adequate sanitation.

What We Do

CBN builds family and community wells to provide clean, reliable water in needy regions of Africa and Asia. The life change is dramatic: not only are people healthier, but children can stay in school and women can earn outside income when they are freed from the daily burden of hauling water several hours. Since 1999, over 5.8 million people have benefitted from the more than 14,000 wells completed.

Be Part of the Answer

Your gift to CBN enables our international teams to build more than 100 wells each month and show God’s love with life-giving water.
