Leave a Legacy
Legacy Water Foundation is a small organization that was founded for the sole purpose of helping people impoverished by the world’s water crisis.
All over the world there are Pastors and Christian groups who are trying to help their people both spiritually and physically. We simply are here to support these groups with the water related needs they have in their area. We understand that often they know what the best solution is for their situation so we simply try to assist in whatever ways we can, making sure we don’t negatively impact their work.
Practically all work is run through just a few volunteers both here and abroad so we can tell you that currently 87.96% of money received is able to go directly to the projects with all of that money staying in their local economy. A very modest 6.92% is used for Bridges of Hope accounting and LWF administrative work. 2.38% goes towards educational promotion campaigns we run at schools and churches and 2.72% to project management for each project.

Along with our own experience and expertise in the water industry we are members of the CWQA (Canadian Water Quality Association) and we use CWQA volunteer member professionals to assist us with technical information and support.
Life. Health. Time. Education.
– 1.8 million children die every year as a result of diseases caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. (UNDP)
– At any given time, half the population of the developing world is suffering from one or more of the main diseases associated with inadequate provision of water and sanitation. (UNDP)–
In sub-Saharan Africa:
40 billion hours of labor are wasted each year carrying water over long distances. (Cosgrove and Rijsberman 1998)
443 million school days are lost each year due to water-related diseases. (UNDP)
Dealing with this daily water crisis takes a huge toll on school, work, health and even life.
Providing safe, clean water removes the single heaviest burden from the lives of the poorest people in our world. Help give the poor a hand up to take their first steps out of poverty.
