Clean Water

One of the cool things HCJB Global does is help communities gain access to clean water and sanitation.  After communities request HCJB Global’s help, HCJB Global engineers design the water system and coordinate the project.   The benefitting communities provide most of the labor of ditch digging.

When a community has clean water and sanitation, the community’s health improves dramatically.  Many, many health problems just disappear.

A recent blog post by Eric and Renee Fogg, HCJB Global missionaries in Shell, Ecuador, provides a first-hand account of a clean water project.  Complete with photos, the story is a great example of the kinds of projects which we will be helping to happen.

And, if you’d like more information, Mission Network News just published an excellent article on HCJB Global’s next step after the community has clean water:
