Happy Easter from the World Help family to yours!
Every year on Resurrection Sunday, it’s World Help’s custom to celebrate the gift of the cross by inviting our supporters to reflect this hope in a tangible way. Our gratitude can literally overflow into the lives of others in desperate need of hope.
This year, we want to invite you to commemorate the cross with a life-changing gift: clean water.
Yes, clean water brings physical transformation; but it’s also a vehicle for the Gospel. And we would be remiss to celebrate Easter without also sharing the hope of the cross.
The lack of safe water in impoverished communities is devastating . . . exhausting . . . deadly.
Without it, childhoods are crippled by malnutrition and stunting. Agricultural returns are underwhelming, which causes the economy to drag. Women and girls spend too many hours in search of water instead of going to school or earning wages. The consequences are endless.
But with clean water, families and villages begin to stabilize. Then, doors are opened for us to share about the Living Water.
Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. – John 4:14
With safe water, a village begins to transform from the inside out—body, mind, and soul. We believe it’s one of the most strategic gifts you can bring to a physically and spiritually impoverished community.
“In this village people suffered for water, but now all the community is comforted and blessed. This well is a blessing to my people. People say it’s our gift from God.” – Velpula Mahimarani, India
Today, as we celebrate and give thanks for an eternal promise, consider sharing the hope that never runs dry.
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. – Isaiah 12:3
