Water... can feed the hungry.
Worldwide hunger problems are really water problems.
Without water, crops and livestock wither and die. People go hungry
and become weak. Weakness allows disease to run its course and finally
the “Quiet Killer” – hunger, takes its toll. At this moment, many communities
in over 50 countries throughout the world are suffering needlessly because water
is either insufficient or polluted or may not exist at all. A sad irony is that many times
there is life saving water just 100 - 250 feet under the surface! Directly underground.
So near, yet too far for people lacking the tools, technology and knowledge to reach it.
But with technologies ranging from simple and inexpensive to state-of-the-art, Today's Reality will commit to helping poor communities in developing countries find new supplies of clean, life-sustaining water. And when clean, fresh water begins to flow in a community - A whole new life begins – free from the threat of food shortages and a myriad of health-related problems that are associated with hunger.
Water ... can overcome poverty
Water is the lifeblood of a community. When water is unsafe to drink,
the entire community suffers. Sick children lack the energy to learn and
weak young men lack the drive to work hard – and so poverty continues.
In many rural communities, it is the women and children who are responsible
for locating and transporting water. Fulfilling this daily responsibility often leaves
little or no time for women to pursue developmental opportunities and for the
young to get an education – and so poverty continues.
Nothing can change a community like providing a source of clean water for the first time.
It creates a complete transformation. It has the power to actually stop the cycle of poverty.
The entire community becomes healthier. For the first time, children become eager to learn
while young men and women are able to work harder to produce an income and more food.
Everyone can envision a better future and work towars achieving it. Providing clean water to
a poverty stricken community is like giving a blood transfusion to a dying man. Water means
new potential, new hope for a better tomorrow, and a new life.
