Water for Life Overview

water for life

We take “water” for granted. Turn the tap water is there! Don’t like tap water – buy bottled water! Getting clean drinking water is assumed as our right. Imagine a different world – A world without water! No taps – No bottled water. If you need water you will have to walk 5 or 10 kilometers to get it. There are places in the world where clean water is only a dream. There are many communities in the world who are deprived of basic necessities of life.

The establishment of just one water pump can benefit approximately 400 people

transforming lives by improving access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. We work with local partners and influence decision-makers to maximize our impact.

Clean Water Crisis

Astonishingly there are such remote areas in the world where many communities are deprived of the basic necessities of life; every sip of water is literally priceless. And this basic need of life makes them walk for miles daily; there is no rest for them.

It is to fetching of the water that takes the largest part of their ages in life and their children usually bear footed struggle to accompany them for this daily effort. Because of this they cannot even spare time to educate their children.

The water they fetch from the temporary local wells and ponds is excessively unclean, which is not good to drink as it is the death of hundreds of infants and children each year from water-borne diseases.

It is the extreme poverty amongst the population coupled with a lack of accessible clean water supply that underscores the misery and destitution of those who live there.

An accessible and clean supply of water within close proximity of their homes Humanity First is striving to share the new way of hope, a source of joy for the people and their loved ones for generations to come.


Large populations in developing countries do not have access to clean water. As a result, hundreds of people die each day from water-borne diseases. Humanity First has stepped in to provide water pumps and wells in the remote villages of many nations around the world. The establishment of just one water pump can benefit approximately 400 people. Such water pumps make life easier for people who would otherwise carry heavy loads of water across long distances.
