Faith-based humanitarian agency Gospel For Asia today announced plans to drill more than 4,000 of its unique “Jesus Wells” in the most needy communities in Asia this year, as World Water Day on March 22 spotlights the struggle to satisfy the world’s growing thirst.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019, GFA (Gospel for Asia, www.gfa.org) is a leading faith-based humanitarian and mission agency, bringing vital assistance and spiritual hope to millions across Asia, especially to those who have yet to hear the “good news” of Jesus Christ. In 2018, this included more than 70,000 sponsored children, free medical camps conducted in more than 1,100 villages and remote communities, over 4,700 wells drilled, over 11,400 water filters installed, income-generating Christmas gifts for more than 240,000 needy families, and spiritual teaching available in 110 languages in 14 nations through radio ministry.
World Water Day highlights the vital importance of access to clean drinking water as a basic human right – this year under the theme “leaving no one behind.”
“Absolutely no one should be left behind when it comes to the most basic need of life – not just water, but clean water,” said GFA founder Dr. KP Yohannan. “Our goal is to provide a long-term, solution in the water-starved villages and communities we serve, giving everyone access to fresh water and providing the training they need to keep their new well pumping clean water for decades to come.”
