Lifewater Canada's Mission is to provide the rural poor in Haiti & Africa with the training, equipment and support they need to drill safe drinking water wells and build improved sanitation facilities. We are actively doing Ebola relief work in Liberia, West Africa
About Our Charity
Lifewater.ca is a non-profit organization drilling water wells in Liberia, Nigeria, Kenya and Haiti, repairing hand pumps, improving sanitation by building washrooms, and providing health & hygiene training.
We have positioned our teams on the ground, where the need is acute, so when hurricanes, outbreaks of cholera and typhoid strike, they are quick to mobilize and reach out a helping hand.
Since we are powered by volunteers working from our home, our overhead is under 5%. Your money goes where it is needed most - providing safe drinking water wells and sanitation in countries like Liberia, West Africa.
We rely on people like you to help make safe drinking water projects affordable for villagers living on a dollar per day. Working together, we can reduce the devastation of water-borne diseases which are a large factor in the death of children. 15% of children in Liberia were dying before reaching age 5 prior to the Ebola epidemic!

"Lifewater Canada's wisdom lies in its devotion to building permanent, local institutions. This not a hit-and-run, tote up hollow numbers organization. If there were to be another Beatitude, it would be: Blessed are the persistent, for they shall transform people." "
