We are providing a unique combination of humanitarian relief and the Gospel presentation. In Liberia, this is highly effective. We are relieving huge amounts of human suffering, particularly among the weak and vulnerable, children and the sick. Most importantly, we are partnering with people that are successfully spreading the Gospel message. This isn’t just counting noses at a revival. This is a true, indigenous church planting effort. We see people that were once dead and are now alive.
Our mission is spreading like a wildfire. As people and organizations partner with us in support, we are moving into new territory each and every day. Since our efforts were birthed in Liberia, we have since expanded into Sierra Leone, Guinea, The Gambia, and now India.
The measurable impact...
Here are just some of Water of Life's achievements since we began in 2007:
Consider these words of gratitude from a school in Johnsonville, Liberia:
"We as a school firstly give glory to God for providing safe drinking water for us as a school and a community. We say words are inadequate to express many thanks to Water of Life, those who came on the field and those who remain in the office. We salute the men and women of the international community, especially the donors who have made it possible for the destitute or unfortunates in society to have access to [safe] drinking water after almost fifteen years of fighting a senseless war in our country, Liberia.”
Below are just some of the faces we've seen transformed on our journey:
- 58 new wells drilled
- 147 wells rehabilitated or repaired
- 120,190 people estimated to be directly affected with access to safe drinking water from WOL wells
- 28 clinics held
- 107 missionaries sent
- 70 new churches planted in Liberia
