Resolving the World Water Crisis for Good with Lasting Solutions to Defeat an Age-old Problem

WILLS POINT, TX — Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by KP Yohannan, issued a Special Report on solving the world water crisis, citing major initiatives to defeat an age-old problem of lack of access to clean water … so critical overall to combating disease and maintain healthy individuals worldwide.

Written for Gospel for Asia by Palmer Holt, InChrist Communications.

For millions of people around the world, finding clean water is a daily struggle. Like all of us, they need water to drink, to wash in and to grow their crops. When they can’t find it, terrible things happen: Farmers lose their livelihoods; people suffer the slow, insidious effects of chronic dehydration; entire families contract dysentery or arsenic poisoning; and too often, people die.

The issue is really twofold: 1) In many places, there simply isn’t enough water available; and 2) Often, the water that people do have is contaminated. Remedies exist for both problems, ranging from complex and costly to astonishingly simple. But sadly, most of the people who desperately need these solutions don’t have access to them — yet.

In my previous special report for Gospel for Asia entitled “Dying of Thirst: The Global Water Crisis,” I unpacked the global quest for access to safe, clean water. This article highlights three major initiatives that are addressing the world water crisis and one practical way you can personally get involved.

Globally, women and girls spend 200 million hours a day collecting water. This would be the equivalent to building 28 Empire State Buildings every single day!
