What is Walk4Water?

Walk4Water Group Photo- Heath, Ohio 

Every day in developing countries, women and children walk an average of 4 miles to collect water for their family. Not only is this chore keeping the children from attending school, but the dirty water they are bringing home is also killing them at an alarming rate!

On average, 842,000 people die a year from water-related illnesses. More children die every day from dirty water than from malaria, aids, and measles COMBINED1.

This is why thousands of people around the country choose to Walk4Water.

Walk4Water is a fundraising program within Healing Hands International that helps support its water ministry. Starting in 2007, Walk4Water has hosted events in communities all over the nation at schools, churches, and organizations. The goal is to bring the life-saving gift of clean water to those who need it so desperately. HHI has funded drilling for clean water since 2001 and completed our 1000th well in April 2018. Upon hitting this goal more than 2 million people will have been given access to clean water.

Check out Dr. Charles’ story of how his community was impacted by the well that the McKenzie Walk4Water provided his community.


How can you get involved?

Host a Walk4Water event in your local community! It is much simpler than you may think. All it takes is passion for helping provide clean water and a little drive to get the word out.

Once you have contacted us about hosting a Walk4Water, we will post your event to our website. You will then receive marketing materials to assist you in getting the word out and forming partnerships with others who want to bring the life saving gift of clean water. Then after making plans for setting up the event and finding volunteers to help at the event, HHI will send employees on the day of the event to assist you in telling everyone why we Walk4Water.

After the event we will be sure to stay in contact with you regarding your funds and how they will be applied. After the well is drilled and we have reports from the community, you will receive your very own well report telling about the lives you have affected.
