Clean Water for Kids

Water sustains life, health and growth of humans, animals, and plants. Access to safe water is a daily crisis faced by a billion of the world’s most vulnerable people — a crisis that threatens life and destroys livelihoods on a devastating scale. It claims more lives than any war, terrorism, and natural disasters, yet it does not make media headlines, nor rally concerted international action. This is a quiet and powerful crisis that is killing and keeping a billion human beings in the cycle of poverty. More than half of these individuals are women and girls.
Poverty is inevitable without clean water. One can’t stay healthy without it. Students who suffer from water borne illness can’t stay in class. They miss out on the chance to learn, and the cycle of poverty continues. Poor health leads to poor productivity, which leads to poor earnings, barely enough to pay for healthcare, as one gets sick often from drinking unsafe water. Those under the age of five are the most vulnerable.
At Clean Water For Kids we are addressing this most basic of needs by helping deprived communities acquire safe, clean water to the kids to help them survive.
We do our best to provide these little Gifts of God with clean water they lack. We raise money among people whose hearts are touched with God's love and compassion to bring kids Clean Water of God's Love.

The Prison Ministry is our first Mission Project and the first mission experience. In 2000 we were called to the women prison in the City of Nigniy Tagil. It is as far as one hundred miles to the North from Ekaterinburg. There is the Children's House in this prison for children who were born there. We have come to this prison to persuade mothers not to leave these children in orphanages after they are released, because the prison administration faced this problem and tried to solve it with no success for a long time. So, we started this mission and now we come to this prison almost every month and have a Bible study with mothers, we are telling them about the Love of our Lord Jesus Christ, about His great Sacrifice on Golgotha and about the blessing they have from Him – their children. They just love to hear about that, about their new life as Christians.
After we started our ministry several mothers were released and they took their children with them. Love and Word of Jesus Christ totally changed their hearts and their lives. Inspired by these results we continue our work here helping these mothers not only spiritually, but also provide medicines, utilities, medical equipment, different appliances for their babies, because due to very poor financing the Children's House badly needs such things. Nowadays there are 130 children aged from the very birth to 3 years old. Seven of them are AIDS infected.
We do our best to provide these little “Gifts of God” with basic needs they lack. We raise money among people whose hearts are touched with God's love and compassion to these wonderful babies.

Another place our Heavenly Father drew us to, to start a new mission, is the orphanage where children live who were picked up in the streets where they were begging to start a new mission there. We accepted this invitation with joy in our hearts because for a long time we prayed our Lord to give us this opportunity. We knocked in the Name of Jesus Christ and our Lord graciously opened for us another door!
Almost every week we come there and tell them about Jesus, play with them, draw pictures, lough and have great time. In the Gospel of St. Matthew Jesus says: ”Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such a these”. And in fact, when they learn about Bible, when they read Bible stories in these wonderful Bible story books for Children, when their innocent souls learn Jesus and Jesus comes to them and gives them His wonderful Love and Joy we become the blessed witnesses of the greatest wonder of all times – the coming Kingdom of Heaven.
There are 69 children in this orphanage now. They have shelter, some clothing, elementary medical care there and they study in the nearby school. They are so vivid that it takes great efforts to bring them back to the topic of the lesson. Each one has his or her own favorite Bible story and he can speak about it endlessly. Just imagine them speaking about Bible all together!
