2016 – Changing the world around us.
With less than 2 weeks to go before the end of 2016 we want to first wish you a blessed Christmas season, full of joy and rich in relationships.
This year has been our most productive year ever in our almost 12 year history. We continue to do more with less while stewarding and caring for all that has been accomplished along the way. It means that ALL 400+ communities we’ve helped are still receiving clean drinking water, maintenance check-ins from our staff, on-going education and encouragement. From the beginning this was not about numbers but depth; hoping and praying for real transformation.
Here are some milestones you have helped us accomplish in 2016:
1. Completed over 75 clean water projects in 75 new communities or schools.
2. Completed our 400th project overall.
3. Taught our hygiene curriculum to over 35,000 men, women and children.
4. Reached over 22,000 people with the Jesus Film.
5. Drill rig “Hal” was acquired and has already helped 13 schools get clean water. With the help of Elliott and Jamie Gulbrand we also trained our indigenous staff how to use the new drill rig paving the way for 2017 and beyond.
We’ve partnered with businesses like Surace-Smith Agencies, Tach Luggage, Vios (Nutrition), Salem Sports, Borderland Candles, Collaborative Companies, Forever Young Photography, Comissioned Clothing & MD3 Media who have sown generously, given back and have a real heart to make a difference.
Churches have made Hydrating Humanity a part of their missions and one of the ways they want to impact the nations. Bethel Cleveland Churches, Awake Church, A Fresh Wind Church, Park Avenue Baptist Church, Queen City Church and others have given us so much encouragement and their desire to realize true and lasting transformation to the villages and regions we work inspires us.
Talented musicians like Jonathan & Melissa Helser, The Cageless Birds, John-Mark McMillan and other artists have leveraged their influence, helped raise awareness and funds and contributed personally to help Hydrating Humanity make an even bigger impact.
And to all of you, the families and individuals who have supported us, we are extremely grateful. Many of you have been monthly supporters for YEARS, which is humbling and provided our entire staff such needed encouragement along the way.
Ending 2016 strong:
We would like to invite you to participate in our year-end giving campaign. The goal is to fund 10 clean water projects for 7 villages and 3 schools before the years end. That is $42,500 needed to accomplish this goal.

Thank you! May 2017 be your best year yet in every way.
