Issues: Water

Location: 10409 Holaday Drive Carmel IN 46032 USA

Mission: Our mission is to serve God by providing safe, life-giving water to people in need. The vision of Fountains of Hope is to empower and equip the body of Christ to provide life-sustaining water for all of God’s children. We will expand this vision by continuing to build relationships with churches, other like-minded ministries and organizations.
Results: Fountains of Hope has installed over 50 water purifier systems in Haiti helping those most affected by the Jan. 2010 earthquake and cholera outbreaks. We installed 15 purifier systems in Kenya helping during the post-election violence, in HIV/AIDs orphanges and the IDP camps near the Somalian border. Two wells were installed in Haiti and five wells installed in Zimbabwe. We hosted our first health and hygiene conference this summer and will be training people in future events.
Target demographics: Our targeted demographics are helping widows and orphans and those afflicted by disasters around the world. We are primarily working in Haiti to help eliminate the cholera outbreaks that are still heavily impacting the country (in spite of it not being on the US news!)
Direct beneficiaries per year: We have had over 20 water purifier systems installed in Haiti this year and 5 systems installed in Kenya. Other organizations use our system and are installing them in other countries.
Geographic areas served: Haiti, Africa, India, South America, Central America, Asia.
Programs: FoH is committed to the installation, integration and teaching of safe water solutions for the poorest and most marginalized via water purification, well drilling and health and hygiene education.

After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, as a Disaster Assistance Response Team Leader, I had the privilege to partner with Fountains of Hope, Bill Farrar and his team, in serving the displaced. One of the most crucial on-going physical needs of the people we encountered was for clean, safe water. FOH offered well-concieved, consistently-executed solutions to the need, with flexibility for each installation site. Bill's team was driven, in it's focus to provide workable, cost-effective solutions even in the most trying of circumstances -- when much of the infrastructure was in ruins and the social structure fractured. His experience in crisis situations allowed Bill to plan which items to hand-carry into the country, which items to ship ahead, if possible, and which items to purchase locally (supporting the local economy.) I was thoroughly impressed with their methods, professional drive and determination, but even more with Bill's personal desire to connect with the people, include them in the process, train them in the operation and maintenance of THEIR system and the personal follow-up he makes with each installation. Fountains of Hope lives up to it's name and mission. They are truly an example of effective humanitarian assistance, as it should be done.

As a person who has worked with International ministries around the globe, my experience working with Fountains of Hope and seeing their work to impact so many is commendable. This ministry is benefiting generations by bringing the Lords living water to so many around the globe. The leadership taking teams to participate in bringing water is also changing those in our own nation. I highly recommend Fountains of Hope as an organization with great leadership who deliver life changing solutions to those around the world.
