Nigeria water purification project charity organization

Haiti Water Distribution Stations
$4,500 Goal — Haiti

Can you imagine providing life-giving, safe water to thousands of people in rural Haiti for less than 1/3rd of a penny per person each day? That's the work that Fountains of Hope and Children's Lifeline Mission are in the process of completing over the next year using one water purifier to service 12 stations along a rural road in Haiti. 9 of 12 sites have been installed to date.

A chance to make a difference - Through Kids Helping Kids, the children in your community can directly affect the health and survival of children in schools where we install purifiers.

Celebrate Greg & Julie!
$12,000 Goal - Haiti & Zimbabwe

Our FoH Board President Greg Phillips and his fiancé Julie Booth were married on June 1, 2019!  
In lieu of gifts, they asked their friends and family to sponsor two or more Fountains of Hope water 
purifier systems.
UPDATE: More than $26,000 was raised at their wedding - enough to install 4 purifier systems in Haiti & Zimbabwe. Thank you!

Our Speciality Areas

 

We thought you would like to see some of our typical water purifier system installations. FoH dosen't install wells or boreholes but only water purification projects that already have water readily available. Our niche is installing systems supporting 500 or more people at schools, churches, orphanages, community centers or medical facilities needing treated water.  If you don't drink the water you presently have, we may be able to help you!

 

hall of fame projects


FoH has installed over 210 water purifier systems in 16 different countries. Each project is unique and each project has its own special triumphs and also its own set of challenges. Here are a few of our most memorable projects.

 

Most Challenging Trip

Crocodiles, hippos and black mamba’s – Oh my!  An elementary school in Binga, Zimbabwe near the Zambezi River is healthy recipients of a new solar powered pumping station that lifts water 600 feet, and then is purified with our portable system. Our teams are known to work in adventurous locations!
 

Most Dangerous Trip

Several water systems were installed in the Kenyan refugee camps during the Kenyan Post Election Violence. Many people were killed during this time and Bill Farrar, our Executive Director, was holed up in his room due to machine gun fire on the street outside his hotel. Not much will stop Bill!
 

charity water organization

Largest System

Our largest water purification system utilizes five 1,000-gallon tanks that provide 5,000+ gallons of safe water daily to the Children’s Lifeline Ministry and community in La Digue Matthiou, Haiti.  The system was sponsored by River Oaks Community Church, Goshen, IN. FoH sponsors are deeply appreciated!
