“I never realized what a need there was for clean drinking water out there in the world. Living comfortably in America, it’s easy to forget that other people out there don’t have it as easy as you do. Volunteering with Water Charity opened my eyes and heart to a whole world of people I can help!”


Susan Muninger,

Oklahoma Volunteer

“My village never had access to the clean water we needed to sustain all of our people until Water Charity. They came to us with open arms and big smiles, helping us install multiple wells and educating us about the importance of clean drinking water. They have helped us so much!"
