ELCA World Hunger’s Walk for Water

Walk for Water: We did it!

the water crisis our impact ideas donate

Thanks to the enthusiasm of our youth and the generous support of many, ELCA World Hunger’s Walk for Water fundraising challenge of $500,000 was met – and now it will be doubled!

To date, more than $500,000 has been received and thanks to a generous family, $500,000 will be matched – totaling more than $1 million in gifts for ELCA World Hunger-supported water projects.

Your gifts are making a difference! Your support is helping create healthier families and stronger economies through projects that provide clean drinking water through spring boxes and boreholes, support for irrigation systems, education about sanitation in rural villages, and so much more. Thank you!

While we celebrate meeting our goal, our work is far from over. Continue the momentum of the Walk for Water challenge with special resources, educational opportunities, and fundraising events that will help our friends around the world break the cycle of hunger and poverty.
