Samaritan's Purse is working in communities around the world in Jesus' Name to provide hurting people with access to clean water.

Samaritan's Purse has water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects in many countries, including Ukraine, Vietnam, Cambodia, Liberia, South Sudan, and more. As we bring clean water and sanitation to those in need, it opens doors for us to introduce the Living Water, our Lord Jesus Christ.

After Hurricane Otis made landfall as a Category 5 storm, Samaritan's Purse established 14 water points at local churches and in other locations throughout Acapulco and surrounding communities. We also provided water filtration units to more than 10,000 homes in Otis’s wake, which was the most powerful storm ever recorded to strike Mexico's Pacific coast.

“We can use this blessing to bless others and encourage them to come to the feet of the Lord.”

Pastor Milton Heredia
Our water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) teams established a solar-powered water point at Pastor Milton's church.

“We have had people accept Jesus when they come to get water,” said Pastor Milton Heredia. “We can use this blessing to bless others and encourage them to come to the feet of the Lord.”

Each cup of clean drinking water represented opportunities to share the eternal hope available only in Jesus Christ. We praise God that almost 400 individuals made decisions for Christ during our multifaceted response in the storm-battered region.

Samaritan’s Purse has provided more than 24 million gallons of clean water to Ukrainians since the war started in Feb. 2022.

In Ukraine, war has damaged major infrastructure leaving many without adequate water. In response, Samaritan's Purse has provided over 24 million gallons of clean water and drilled 35 wells.

Anna* began coming to her local church to receive water through a Samaritan's Purse water, sanitation, and hygiene project. There she heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. “One day I made up my mind and went to a meeting on Sunday,” she said. “Since then, I have been attending this church regularly, reading the Bible, and attending the groups that study God's Word.” Her story is just one of many similar stories across Ukraine as people hear the Gospel through our staff and local church partners.

Please pray for our teams and those they serve around the world.
