Thirst Relief International

To express our core commitment to Improve Water and the World, WaterFilters.NET is lifting up the work of major water charities.

Here is one of ten non-profits to which we recently contributed.

Thirst Relief International is a water development organization striving to improve access to safe water in nine countries worldwide. Founded in 2005, Thirst Relief teams up with its implementing partners to initiate and maintain water projects in impoverished rural areas and urban slums. By resourcing their partners with financial and technical resources, they provide both training and infrastructure development to make a lasting and sustainable impact.  Every year, thousands of people experience health through safe drinking water made possible by Thirst Relief International. Without Thirst Relief’s support, and the generosity of their donors, many of these water projects would never come into being.

Thirst Relief works where invited with the goal of improving people’s long-term health in a cost-effective manner. Working closely alongside local partner organizations, they assess particular needs, then help in the design and implementation of water projects. They are committed to equipping new partners with the necessary training—especially the business expertise needed for setting up their programs. Once work begins, Thirst Relief offers regular oversight and project management to ensure the project’s success. Additionally, Thirst Relief collects  financial and field reports to promote accountability and transparency.

Thirst Relief’s mission is “to overcome death and disease resulting from the consumption of contaminated water by providing safe, clean drinking water to those in need around the world.” Their vision is clear: “to save lives and change the world.”
