Safe Water, Bright Futures for Over 5,000 Children!

Last fall, we set out to raise $100,000 by December 31st to improve the health and brighten the future of 4,000 vulnerable children living without safe water. 

Thanks to your amazing generosity, we exceeded our goal and raised enough to reach over 5,000 children! 
THANK YOU so very much.

Your support provides the foundation for real change. Nine-year-old Nelson Perez-Torrez (pictured) is just one example of how life changes dramatically simply by gaining access to safe water. Read Nelson's story

Honoring Haitians: 8 Years After the Earthquake

Carolyn Meub, PWW Executive Director, recently wrote a letter honoring the resiliency of the Haitian people and recalling the earthquake that rocked their small island 8 years ago. If you did not had a chance to read her letter click here

"We are proud and humbled to be working in this beautiful country, and we continue our commitment to partner with the Haitian people, working side-by-side to help them fulfill their hopes and dreams for their own future and the future of their children and grandchildren."

PWW Student Volunteer Inspired By Haiti Experience

Victoria Garrow (pictured) participated in a PWW service trip to Haiti in the fall of 2016. It was an impactful experience that inspired her future goals.

“Traveling to Haiti with Pure Water For the World was the best decision I’ve ever made, and it provided me with clarity for my future humanitarian efforts and career path,” Garrow shared last January in a conversation with PWW. (read 2017 interview)
Garrow is holding to that goal. She was recently featured in Nexus - The Northwestern Michigan College Magazine (pages 20-21). In reference to her Haiti trip, Victoria shared,“That just really verified that I wanted to be a doctor. Once I become a doctor, I can go anywhere in the world and be able to have my hands fix people.” 
The team at PWW is excited for Victoria and her blossoming future. We are humbled by her passionate commitment to helping others and grateful to her for sharing it with PWW and the people of Haiti. We look forward to what the future holds for Victoria…and for all of the lives that she will surely impact. Best of luck to you, Victoria!
