When we look at large numbers, we become overwhelmed. “884 million people? You expect me to think I can help with that?” The answer is an overwhelming YES!
In 2010 the World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund Joint Monitoring Program for Water Supply and Sanitation provided the following report:
The number of people who lack safe drinking water is down to 884 million from 1.1 billion in 2006. It is estimated that with current progress, the number of people who will still lack access to improved drinking sources will be 672 million in 2015.
Your contribution of any amount will help save lives and provide quality of life. Even though problems that effect millions of people seem overwhelming, WE ARE able to make a difference.
Will you provide a cold drink of water for Jesus? He says you do exactly that by providing for “the least of these.”
