The Good News of Safe Water

14:20 10 February in Our Story

Safe Water Tanzania Sunday – March 13

DSC_0324 Did you know that “Safe Water Tanzania” has already help to provided ten villages with clean water wells? Efforts are underway this spring for the largest safe water engineered system in the Magoya area that will serve up to 3,000 people.

Our Goal?
Safe water for the neediest villages of the South West Diocese, Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania so that women and children won’t have to walk several miles each day.

How?
In partnership with Water Missions International, and Water to Thrive, faith-based non-profit ministries, Lutherans in South Carolina are raising funds and awareness to bring safe water to brothers and sisters in Christ in the highlands of Tanzania.

Safe water means that infants, children and youth will have a better chance for a healthy life because water-borne illnesses will be drastically reduced. And time needed to bring water home will be greatly reduced – water is right there in the village at the tap, or the well, not in a distant dirty creek. Now there’s more time for school activities.

Did you know you can help?
Please consider giving a special offering on March 13th or click the Safe Water Tanzania banner on scsynod.com. The banner will take you to our online giving platform and you may make a donation directly.

Members of the South Carolina Synod and the South West Diocese enjoy a “companion synod” relationship, sharing and celebrating the Good News of Jesus Christ. Through this special project, we are also sharing the good news of safe drinking water!
