What is LDS Philanthropies?

Clean Water


One billion people suffer thirst and disease because they lack clean water. Humanitarian Services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who operates LDS Charities, builds water and sanitation systems and teaches communities hygiene and system maintenance, empowering them to meet their long-term water needs.

Last year, Humanitarian Services provided clean water to 1,100,000 people in 33 countries. They included a rainwater catchment system for 10,000 people in Vanuatu, a stream capture system for 28,000 people in Indonesia, and wells for 5,600 people in Zimbabwe.
