“Rwanda is a country with an ambitious goal – to be the first in Africa with 100% access to clean water. Clean water has the potential to transform lives, and here at Liquid Church, we’re committed to helping Rwandans reach this milestone,” said Tim Lucas, lead pastor and founder of Liquid Church. “Right now approximately 25% of Rwandans have no other choice but to drink dirty water that carries water borne diseases and makes families ill. By hosting the Run For Rwanda, we’re not only drawing attention to this crisis, but we’re raising funds that can be used to effect real change in Rwanda.”
Liquid and its overseas partner Living Water International have been working together in Rwanda since 2015. To date, Liquid has helped to open over 360 clean water wells in 9 nations, bringing clean water to over 130,000 people across the globe. Of those wells, 153 clean water wells have been opened throughout Rwanda. Funds raised through the Run For Rwanda on October 22nd will help to complete the WASH program (water access, sanitation and hygiene) in the Ruhango and Busasamana regions of the country.
