Living Water

Although high mountains and streams generally provide adequate water, nearly all water is contaminated. Typhoid fever, cholera, and other fecal-borne disease lead to death and malnutrition. As part of the training to be a Village Health Worker, Christian leaders learn both how to build a simple outhouse, and how to evaluate water supplies and test water.
 
If a village needs a clean water supply, they may provide H.E.L.P. with an estimate. We pay no more than 50% of the cost, and require locals to do all building. For toilets, we provide a piece of tin for a roof, but the individual or family must build his/her own toilet, under our village health worker's supervision.  We have learned that for sustainable community development, the people must use their own efforts to help themselves. 

In the future, as God provides, we hope to provide more clean water sources.
