Help Bring Clean Water to an Orphanage in DRC!

Children of All Nations works to serve underprivileged kids in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) through adoption and orphan care programs. Did you know the DRC ranks as the world's poorest country based on GDP per capita? We have discovered that the majority of people in the DRC, especially orphans, have NO access to clean water. We want to change this. Why? Because….

  • Today 2.5 billion people, including almost one billion children, live without even basic sanitation. Every 20 seconds, a child dies as a result of poor sanitation. That's 1.5 million preventable deaths each year. (Source: WWDR, 2012)
  • Globally, diarrhea is the leading cause of illness and death, andhttps://www.purecharity.com/end-malnutrition-for-orphans-in-burundi, together with inadequate availability of water for hygiene and unsafe drinking water. (Source: JMP)
  • The provision of improved sanitation and safe drinking water could reduce diarrheal diseases by nearly 90 percent. (Source: JMP)

Our goal is to raise $2000 to send filters to our partner orphanages, schools and their communities to give these children a chance to overcome these daunting statistics. These filters will remove bacteria and parasites from the water, such as cholera, botulism, typhoid, amoebic dysentery, e.coli, coliform bacteria, streptococcus, salmonella, giardia, cryptosporidium, and clyclospora. The filters remove 99.99999% of diseases in the water, they are portable, and can serve up to 100 people per day for several years.


Together with your help, Children of All Nations will be able to save thousands of lives of those directly affected by a lack of clean drinking water. Donate $50 to buy a filter which will save 100 lives each day for years.

Thank you for helping us make a difference!
