Over 660 million people are still trapped in the water crisis. Clean safe water is a basic building block of life yet millions of people still lack access to it. Children are especially vulnerable to waterborne disease, which remains the fourth leading cause of death worldwide. At any one time, it is estimated that half the world’s hospital beds are occupied with patients suffering from waterborne diseases. 

Our core mission is to see the poorest areas of the world realize REAL and lasting transformation at every level: economically, socially, spiritually and in physical health. We believe the most impactful spearhead into these communities is clean, safe water projects and hygiene education. Our mission is to eradicate the waterborne disease crisis, save lives, love people and reveal Christ.

Matt Peterson

More than a decade ago, Matt Peterson was inspired to start Hydrating Humanities and change the lives of adults and children in East Africa. Hydrating Humanity has brought continents together, in order to provide clean water to thousands of people and improve their quality of life.

Meet Christina

Every day, women like Christina walk an average of 4 miles to fetch buckets of water. No matter the weather conditions or the current state of the river, she must gather enough for the day. Learn more about Christina’s daily journey to provide her family with a common essential.

Jesus Film

Hundreds of children, from the surrounding area, gathered to watch a gospel film and experience the scripture. While Hydrating Humanity aims to provide clean water for families in Africa, they also spread the word and promote spirituality to impact their lives in more ways than one.
