Thirst Quenchers Are Transforming Thousands of Lives Through Safe Water and God’s Love

Each day we have the opportunity to bless others and make a positive impact. When we join together to share our gifts, the impact is exponential. Today, lives are being transformed thanks to the faithful commitment of the Thirst Quencher community. The monthly contributions of this generous group are changing people’s lives every day.  

So far this year, more than 10,100 people around the world have access to safe water and an opportunity to hear the gospel through the support of Thirst Quenchers.  

In Katenje, Malawi, women and children would spend hours walking long distances to collect water. Some families would have to pay people to help them dig and clean out shallow wells. This costs them valuable time and money. Unfortunately, the water they collected was often unsafe and resulted in illness. 

Collectively, women around the globe spend 200 million hours a year walking to find water for their families.

“We faced so many challenges,” said Ida, a mother of three. “The water was very dirty. When we fetched water, we would wait for particles to settle down before using it.” 

Additionally, those who were physically unable to collect water had to pay others to fetch water for them or hire people to clean out the shallow wells they had dug. This was very costly and resulted in ongoing financial strain on many families. 

Now, thanks to the generosity of Thirst Quenchers and other supporters like you, more than 3,700 people in Katenje have easy access to clean, safe water. With multiple safe water access points in the community, including at churches and clinics, this project brings life and the opportunity for economic development to the area. 

Katenje has seen economic growth, as people from neighboring communities now seek out services in Katenje because they have safe water.

“Hygiene has improved in my family because water is readily available,” said Suzgo, a local businessman. “The project is also helping us make a budget and save money on water expenses now.”    

However, 2 billion people are still affected by the global water crisis. Lack of access to safe water causes illness, poverty, and conflict. Safe water is a necessity. With it comes health, hope, and life.
