Never Thirst Again

In 2018, Mercy, Inc., built 450+ clean water wells in South Asia. By the end of 2018, the ministry had dug 3,898 wells over the past 8 years.

In the Rohingya camp where 1.3 million Rohingya people are living on 600 acres of land in the UN refugee camp, we have dug more than 100 strategically placed wells in 2017, with each one costing approximately $2200. These wells have provided much-needed clean water. Generally, the wells are 800-1000 feet deep so the quality is good.

With great joy, we see the Rohingya women pump the water into their jugs and happily carry it back to their modest homes to aid in keeping their families healthy.

More wells have been placed in the rural villages to replace the water people were drinking from muddy rivers or shallow wells, where the impurity is high and often causes sickness.

Good News + Compassion

In addition to building the clean water wells, our team provides health education and Gospel presentations. The wells have improved the overall health in the villages, especially for the babies and children. What a blessing for people to have clean water close by instead of having to walk long distances, only to realize the water has many impurities and causes even when boiled.

For a gift of $2,200, you can provide the funds needed to drill a well and provide clean, life-sustaining water for a whole village. Any donation will contribute to the purchase of one well.

In 2018, one well, on average, provided 400 with clean water, 140 decisions for Christ, 28 baptisms and created opportunities for church and cell groups to form.
