We’re passionate about providing life’s most essential need to
impoverished communities worldwide with . . . the gift of clean water.

the crisis

Watch Brenda’s story to learn more about the need . . . and
the change that comes when clean water arrives.

Crisis: In Brief

663 million people lack access to clean water. That’s one out of every nine people on the planet.

3.4 million people die every year from water, hygiene-related reasons. Nearly 100 percent live in the developing world.

A child will die every 20 seconds from poor sanitation conditions.

Women and young girls will spend an average of 6 hours a day fetching water in developing countries.

An american taking a 5-minute shower uses more water than a person in the developing world uses in an entire day.


With Global Access to Clean Water:

More than 1.5 million children could be saved from death each year.

Women gain equal access to productive resources, enabling global crop productivity to increase by 20-30 percent.

150 million people would no longer go hungry.

Over 443 million school hours would be gained each year.





Giving clean water to a community opens the doors to a world of change. Water is the catalyst for overcoming the cycle of poverty and creating opportunity for growth and progress. We see clean water as more than just a benefit . . . it’s a new beginning . . . a second chance . . . hope for a better




Our strategy is to provide communities with sustainable, high quality
infrastructure to keep clean water flowing year-round.


Deep Bore Wells

Where climate and geography permit, drilling deep into the earth for clean ground water offers the most reliable and sustainable water sources for those in need.


Specialized Water Projects

Communities have different water needs: filtration systems, cisterns, piping, storage tanks, hand-dug wells, etc. Whatever the solution, we are committed to providing the infrastructure needed to get clean water flowing in impoverished communities.


Provide Water to a Family

Combine your giving with the gifts of others to provide water solutions for people in need around the world.




Specialized Water Projects

Varying climates and geography present a range of challenges when it comes to implementing water projects. We strive to offer customized solutions for each community based on their specific needs. We have the capacity to drill deep-bore wells, construct cisterns, implement complex piping and purification systems, provide water storage systems for drought seasons, and much more.


Maintenance Training

Far too often, water projects become obsolete from simple mechanical malfunctions. To combat this, we recruit members of each community to be specially trained in the mechanical upkeep of the well site. Empowering people to take pride in the survival of their water project promotes dignity and emphasizes ownership.


where we work


Since 2009, World Help has provided 706 wells and water projects in 15 countries around the world.
