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.

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.

The Power of Partnerships: Why We Are Better Together

World Hope International has a long history of partnering with other organizations. When it comes to emergency relief work there is a need for organizations to come together in order to make a greater impact.

Innovating for Impact On Our Clean Water Strategy in Liberia

Many communities in Liberia were faced with an unimaginable question – how to stave off COVID-19 without clean water? This challenge left thousands walking long-distances in search of clean water…

WASH Reflections: Here’s to Good Health

In June of 2019, World Hope International (WHI) made a year-long commitment, along with 72 other organizations, to focus on Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene in Healthcare Facilities (WASH in HCF).

More Baths Can Happen!

When two young girls in the community heard about this, they were so excited to know they would have clean water coming to their household instead of going to the dirty pond.

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.

AN ORGANIZATION YOU CAN TRUST.

Spending of World Hope International (Canada) funds is confined to Board approved projects. 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.
