Clean Water Ministry

With the help of our partners, CBN is building family and community wells that provide clean, reliable water in needy regions of Africa and Asia. Our staff work with local leaders to identify needs and coordinate each project. In most places, bore wells and protected hand-dug wells are most effective and can meet the needs of several hundred villiagers

The Need

  • At least 1.8 billion people are using contaminated drinking water every day1.
  • An estimated 801,000 younger than 5 years of age perish from diarrhea each year. The majority of these illnesses (88%) are the results of poor sanitation and unsafe drinking water1.
  • Improved water supply can boost a country's economic growth and can contribute greatly to poverty reduction1.

What We Have Accomplished Together

  • Since 1999, CBN has helped over 6.2 million people through the construction of more than 15,000 fresh water wells. Each well project also addresses hygiene and sanitation concerns considered significant by agencies like the World Heath Organization, to ensure a safe water supply and maximize the health benefits of clean water.
  • As a result, many people testify about the differences that clean water makes in their lives, families, and communities.
