Clean water can change lives. In program areas where churches are present, WFWA helps to train church leaders in foundational principles of God’s mandate to love the vulnerable. Where there is no Christian presence, we partner with local ministries to share the good news of Christ.
In scripture, Jesus heals people physically and spiritually. Following His example, our team shares life-transforming health practices and brings safe water to meet physical needs. Then our local ministry partners share God’s love and help to plant churches—meeting a spiritual need.
We desire that God would transform communities holistically. With no access to a safe water supply, health is perpetually vulnerable, and communities are inhibited from unlocking educational and economic opportunities that could transform their lives. With your help, we can change that.
After recently partnering with Healing Hands International’s (HHI) Walk4Water, Ghana West Africa Missions (GWAM) and Water for West Africa (WfWA) successfully raised over $45,000 to drill new water wells in communities across rural Ghana. Through the Austin WALK4Water event, we were blessed by being able to drill five new wells in Northern Ghana communities. One of the communities now blessed with access to clean water is the Kanjotido Church of Christ and the surrounding community.
Nine-year-old Nasa (pictured right) had never seen clear water flow from a clean pipe. Members of the congregation, Nasa, and her family’s lives are now forever transformed. Thanks to the hard work of GWAM and WfWA, and constant support from our partners, the Kanjotido community and Nasa now have clean water.
