India is facing a fresh water crisis. India has just 4% of the world’s fresh water — but 16% of the global population.
Half of India’s water supply in rural areas, where 70% of the country’s population lives, is routinely contaminated with toxic bacteria.
Every year, about 140,000 children die of diarrhea or pneumonia, often caused by toxic water or poor hygiene. An estimated 1600 a day.
Joe Streckfuss Plumbing has sponsored wells for villages in need of clean water through the Love Song Foundation. Wells Sponsored to date: 2 (and counting)
Each well provides water for 1000+ villagers, and in addition, points people to Jesus.
About the Love Song Foundation: Our Mission is to provide for the material needs of the poor, distressed, and underprivileged in order to improve living conditions and also build relationships with local church communities so that the Gospel of Jesus Christ may be both shown and shared.
They are a 501c3 not-for-profit organization founded in partnership with Everlasting Tours. Everlasting Tours donates the admin time to get the wells built and stay up to date on compliance. In addition, $50 from each sale of a Love Song Couples getaway goes directly to the Love Song Foundation so that we can keep the sponsorship cost to donors low and make sure that 100% of their money goes directly to project expenses. www.lovesongfoundation.org
