Donate Water - Compassion International

When you donate water, you change a community and save lives. Compassion’s Water of Life program provides for the most urgent needs in developing countries around the world. Through the program, children and communities receive safe and clean drinking water.

Through your water donation, children are kept safe from water-related illnesses like typhoid and cholera. These illnesses are very serious and often keep children from going to school and reaching their full potential.

To donate water to children in need, make a donation to Compassion Water of Life. Your donation will provide a family with the Water of Life system that provides over 1 million gallons of water. The family will also receive education on how to improve hygiene. When you donate water, you also help the community have the support they need to improve their water supply.

So, donate water! When you do, you save lives and improve health for entire communities.

Water of Life Give Safe Water for Life

4,000 children die every day from diseases caused by unsanitary water conditions. You can provide a water filter that will give a child clean water for life.

$79 provides one family with clean water for life.

How Does Compassion Provide Clean Water For Life?

Clean water helps children stay healthy, remain active in school, and focus their energy on overcoming poverty. Through the Water for Life program, your donation equips a family in poverty with:

  • A water cleaning system that provides up to 1 million gallons of clean water
  • Training from a Compassion staff leader to ensure proper use of the system
  • Emergency medical supplies when needed
  • Education on personal hygiene and sanitation methods

Your one-time donation is fully tax-deductible, and will enable a Compassion child and their family to have clean water for life. Sometimes, water filters even provide much, much more:

“Many who were non-believers found the filters as a God-sent miracle and changed their lifestyle. They are now changed to become believers in Jesus and accepted to be baptized.  I now baptize every three months, yet before I used to do so once a year.” 
- Pastor Rubaduka Mathias in Rwanda, Compassion International

The Water for Life Fund Helps Children Like Adjaratou

In Burkina Faso (Africa), unsafe water is the only water option for most families. That water threatens to steal the life of children like Adjaratou.

Before Water for Life, Adjaratou was confined to her bed for weeks at a time. She suffered from acute pain in her stomach caused by contaminated water and would go weeks without attending her Compassion Child Development Center.

Today, Adjaratou is healthy, laughing, and attending school at her Compassion program regularly. Her water filtering system stands proudly beside her bed, a testament to the vital importance of clean water.
