What We Do

Walk4Water is where passion meets opportunity through its fundraising events. Our goal is to enable the water program of Healing Hands International (HHI) to provide clean water to those in need in the name of Jesus Christ. HHI has had the opportunity to do this in multiple countries such as: Haiti, Ethiopia, India, Honduras, Ghana, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya.

Since 2010 HHI has employed a full crew committed to drilling clean water wells in Haiti. This drilling program has continually added to our overall count of wells drilled since 2001. On April 25th, 2018 we installed the pump on the 1000th well in our history in La Tremblay, Haiti. By God working through people like you all of this has been made possible!

In countries other than Haiti, we have been able to continue bringing clean water. We have been able to partner with companies who drill in the community we are desiring to bring clean water to. Along with these partnerships we seek to provide clean water in places where we may not be able to reach, like places hit by a recent disaster or where the ground is not permissible for a drilling rig. In these areas, we send Sawyer Water Filtration Systems to filter the water that is currently present for these communities. The hurricane in Haiti, the earthquake in Mexico, and the hurricanes that hit the Caribbean including Puerto Rico are some examples of how these filters have been able to be of use preventing the spread of water-borne illnesses.

Here are some statistics from the World Health Organization telling a little bit why we Walk4Water:

  • 844 million people lack even a basic drinking-water service, including 159 million people who are dependent on surface water.
  • Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces.
  • Contaminated water can transmit diseases such diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio. Contaminated drinking water is estimated to cause 502,000 diarrhoeal deaths each year.
  • In low- and middle-income countries, 38% of health care facilities lack an improved water source, 19% do not have improved sanitation, and 35% lack water and soap for handwashing.
