Every 26 seconds, a child dies somewhere in the world because they don't have clean water, but Healing Hands International (HHI) is determined to push back against that average.
The most basic of human needs is clean water. Healing Hands International seeks to meet this need by drilling clean water wells in nations such as Haiti, India, Ethiopia, Ghana, Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Kenya. In the nations of Ethiopia and Haiti, HHI own drilling rigs and have crews working year-round to drill community wells. Since beginning our clean water ministry in 2001, over 800 wells have been drilled, providing clean water to more than a million precious souls. Many of these wells were made possible because of individuals like YOU!
In countries where we do not own our own drilling rigs, we partner with companies who can fulfill those requests. However, there are still many nations where we cannot drill a well, whether it not be feasible or the ground doesn’t allow us, we are still committed to providing clean water. In these areas, we purchase and ship Sawyer Walter Filters. Sawyer water filtration systems are able to filter enough water for a small community each day. The tsunami in Japan, the earthquake in Haiti, the typhoon in the Philippines, the earthquake in Nepal, and most recently hurricane Matthew in Haiti, are just a few examples of how these filters were distributed to prevent the spread of Cholera and other water related illnesses.
One special Kenyan woman named Celestine, shared with us how her Sawyer water filter dramatically changed her life. Read Celestine's story.
