Pure Water, Pure Love

Pure Water, Pure Love logo

For many people in the world, walking miles while carrying heavy jugs of water in order to make sure they have clean water is a daily reality. Many missionaries constantly run the risk of contracting a disease or parasite from the water in the countries they are in. This is where Pure Water, Pure Love takes action.

The primary goal of PWPL is to provide missionaries with water filters and the people they serve with wells that offer clean water, free from disease-causing microorganisms. With the help of hundreds of churches, PWPL provides thousands of water filters to missionary families and helps fund clean water projects.


In 2016 alone:

  • 2,052 water filters and filter replacement parts were provided for missionaries and mission teams
  • $21,000 from 2 grants helped meet water needs in Indonesia and Haiti by providing water filters for families


Since 2005, $633,001 has been granted water and well projects all over the world!
