May Giving Highlight – Neverthirst

We all know how important water is for our health and survival, it’s something many of us take for granted. You’re thirsty, you head to your kitchen for a glass of water, clean water. But stop and think for just a second about people living in countries where clean water is considered a luxury, if it’s available to them at all.

Founded in 2009 by Spencer Sutton, Mark Whitehead and Forrest Walden, Neverthirst is a Birmingham faith based, non profit organization that builds wells in India, Sudan, and Central African Republic.

There are almost 1 billion people living without access to clean and safe drinking water. 4,500 kids die everyday from preventable, waterborne illnesses in the developing world, such as diarrhea, dehydration, typhoid and worms. Many women spend hours walking several miles a day to ponds and streams to collect 5 gallons of dirty water to bring home to their families. Providing people with clean water cuts down on much unnecessary illness and death, missed school, hospital trips and time spent gathering water. Neverthirst raises funds and awareness to help aid these individuals.

100% of public donations go to projects on the ground and they partner with local churches in these villages to drill the deep-water wells or provide other appropriate solutions to community water issues.

In the last 2 years NeverThirst has funded 217 projects to help more than 76,000 people.
