Public Safety, Disaster Preparedness & Relief
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.
River Oaks Community Church just installed a water purification system at Children's Lifeline International in Haiti! What an amazing thing to bring pure water to the people of the La Digue community. Bill, Founder of Fountains of Hope, is a wealth of knowledge and was so easy to work with. He is very caring and has a tremendous passion for bringing pure water to least of these all over the world. The system that we installed will provide about 3,000 gallons of water an hour! Simply amazing. River Oaks would highly recommend using Fountains of Hope and Bill Farrar to anyone interested in purifying water. We definitely will be!
