In North America, most of us take it for granted that we can turn on a tap and get a healthy drink of water. We have access to filtered water and bottled water when clean drinking water isn't available. Usually, after a restroom break or before eating, there's a sink nearby where we can wash up. But that's not the case for many families in Honduras. You may not realize that:
- About one in nine people in Honduras don't have access to clean water resources. Most of these people live in rural areas.
- Lack of access to clean water means women and girls spend valuable time walking long distances to wells. That's time they could be spending in school or providing for their families in other ways.
- Too often, rural families are forced to get their drinking water from local rivers—the same rivers where people (and animals) bathe. Drinking water from rivers leads to disease and malnutrition.
But we can change that!
World Vision is passionate about meeting the need of this global crisis. In fact, they're the leading nongovernmental provider of clean water in the developing world! The international team at World Vision connects one new person with clean water every 10 seconds! The team at Group Publishing is excited to partner with such experts, who love God and have a desire to care for God's people.
A $5 donation can provide clean water for one person for more than a year! Plus, initiatives in rural Honduras promote and provide support for handwashing and sanitation! Wow! That means no more long walks to the well or being forced to drink harmful water! That small donation means your kids will make a huge impact!
With Operation Kid-to-Kid we have the opportunity to bless countless families in Honduras, helping them have access to one of life's most basic resources!
