Clean Water & Sanitation

In disasters, response time matters. 

Clean water is vital for health and sanitation and, left without water for days at a time, impacted communities are prone to a secondary disaster such as a cholera outbreak.

That’s why not only do we act immediately, but we also act beforehand by training volunteers on how to use our clean water emergency solutions. When a disaster strikes, we can put out a call from our volunteers and immediately deploy teams of 5 – 10 trained and ready responders.

We conduct training throughout the year and any groups interested in being WHI Emergency Relief Water-Team Responders can reach out to us to set up a training and go through the application process.

Interested in serving with us on our Fresh Water Volunteer Teams? Let us know! Be sure to include details like the team training group size you have in mind and where you are located as well as a little about who you are and why you want to join us.

Project Goals

Water Team Volunteers Trained To-Date

I had an amazing experience in the Philippines with World Hope! The team worked together flawlessly. Our mission distributing life-saving filters and supplies went perfectly! It was quite an adventure. Thank you so much for the Fresh Water Team training in Nova Scotia earlier this year.

Celebrating the Passionate Purpose

World Hope’s first-ever Online Gala could not have gone any better. Our community stepped up and we all experienced 37 feel-good minutes of good news.

Making Things New

When other organizations were shutting down and pushing pause on current work, World Hope did not close. We did the opposite. Our doors remained open and our staff pivoted in strategy to find a way to address COVID.

Rehabilitating Wells in Liberia

“There are a lot of wells that are broken and if we can rehab these wells, then we can do it much quicker; we can begin to get clean water and then we can help with the soap for sanitation, so people can wash their hands.”

Volunteers Responding to Disaster

I recently interviewed Jimmy Penney about his experience as an emergency response volunteer for World Hope International (Canada). Read about why he has joined Canada's emergency response team! Tanya: Jimmy tell me a bit about yourself? What is a normal day/week for...

Funds designated towards a project are used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for that project has been met or cannot be completed for reasons determined by the Board, the remaining funds designated will be used where needed most.
