“Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord!”
People in the country of Pakistan are in desperate need. Excessive monsoon rains have caused massive flooding, leaving one-third of the country underwater. The flood has caused extensive damage and loss of life, impacting over 33 million people, many of them displaced and seeking water, food, and shelter.
At Water Mission, we are living out our value of love (loving God and our neighbors in need) by responding to meet these most basic water needs. Our team recently shipped out three Living Water Treatment Systems (LWTS), water bladders and tap stands to distribute water, and 200,000 P&G water purification packets (each packet capable of treating 2.5 gallons of water). Each LWTS can produce 10,000 gallons of safe water per day by filtering contaminated flood water and distributing it on site. On the ground, we’re working with an established partner to provide this vital safe water resource.
Please pray for people and families across Pakistan impacted by the deadly flooding and for our staff and partners engaging in meeting this overwhelming need. With an expressed call for 100,000 additional gallons of safe water per day, Water Mission is eager to deploy 10 additional lifesaving LWTSs in Pakistan, as gifts allow. Would you consider supporting Water Mission’s disaster relief efforts to bring safe water to those struggling amid this devasting flooding?
