Clean Water

Clean water is essential to life. An estimated 768 million people use unsafe water sources. 2.5 billion lack improved sanitation facilities, according to the United Nation’s Children’s Fund. On March 22, organizations around the world promote global access to clean and safe water during World Water Day. BGR does its part to provide high-quality water for as many people as possible. How? By distributing water filters, drilling wells, building latrines and offering sanitation training throughout various impoverished countries.

You can make a difference

You can provide clean water to families by partnering with BGR. Give below, donate a water filter through our gift catalog, or gather a group of friends to take the BGR Well Dig Dare. Join BGR in working to decrease these staggering statistics.

Who does the drilling of the wells? How much money does it take to drill a well? Could I get a location of a well that my church would sponsor so we could be praying for that village? Are there a missionary in that village to share the Gospel?
