What is Walk4Water?
Every day in developing countries, women and children walk an average of 4 miles to collect water for their families. Not only is this chore keeping the children from attending school, but the dirty water they are bringing home is also killing them at an alarming rate!
Each year diarrhea kills around 525 000 children under five. A significant proportion of diarrheal disease can be prevented through safe drinking water and adequate sanitation and hygiene. (https://www.afro.who.int/health-topics/child-health)
This is why thousands of people around the country choose to Walk4Water. Walk4Water is a fundraising program within Healing Hands International (HHI) and a partnership with WaterforWestAfrica.org (a Program Powered by Ghana West Africa Missions) that helps support its water ministry - especially in West Africa. The Partnership began in 2019, and since then, over 10,0000 people in West Africa have received clean water. The goal is to bring the life-saving gift of clean water to those who need it so desperately and to glorify God through this process. Please join us in our Mission!
