Clean Water



One billion people suffer thirst and disease because they lack clean water. 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, LDS Charities 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.
