In the next fifteen seconds, a child will die from a water-related disease. Every minute, four die. 240 children are gone within an hour, and 5,760 have lost their lives every day!*
That is a lot of children to die every day. Where I live, we have beautiful, clean, fresh water coming out of our ears, always at our fingertips, and it is hard to imagine life without water at easy access. To have to walk several kilometers to find a source of pure water or to use less water in one day than I already do in a five-minute shower is hard to imagine.
There are thousands upon thousands of people around the world who struggle to survive without water. We are so blessed by God to have a reliable amount of water for us to survive abundantly on. Yet so many people just don’t have water, the essential to life.
So here’s the challenge. An organization called Dollar for a Drink, which started just last year, is issuing a challenge to give up one dollar (or more) to raise enough money to build wells in Sudan, Africa. Simply go to their website to donate, or learn more about the need and cause.
Can we give even a dollar to this cause to bless the Sudan people by Christmas day?
