Operation Clean Water
Millions of people around the world don’t have clean water to drink. You can help give them the gift of clean water—and along the way, give them the life-giving gift of God’s Word in their own language.
Millions of people around the world, children and adults alike, don’t have one verse of Scripture in their own language. All too often they also don’t have access to clean water to drink, let alone for cooking or bathing. No one can live without fresh, clean water.
In many areas, it’s impossible for Bible translators to continue their work because water is so unavailable. Where translators are able to work at all, their work is slowed down by the ceaseless quest—the desperate need for clean water.
This is far more than just a problem for translation teams, however. Accessing clean water is a life-or-death struggle for the multitudes of people we are trying to reach with God’s Word—and many are losing the battle. “It’s hard to share the hope of the gospel when they’re dying of physical thirst,” said one of our volunteers.
Wycliffe Associates launched an aggressive global campaign to provide clean water for millions of people in crisis. This will enable Bible translators to work in areas where they never could gain access before.
Once the community leaders determine their needs, Wycliffe Associates staff and volunteers train participants to drill wells, hand-dig wells, build and maintain well pumps, construct water towers and distribution systems.
Millions of people around the world don’t have clean water to drink. See how you can help give them the gift of clean water—and along the way, give them the life-giving gift of God’s Word in their own language.
