Students, teachers and parents from Covenant Christian School joined 100+ people from the local community to walk 6 Kilometers today as part of World Vision’s 6K for Water campaign. Those of us in South Bend weren’t walking alone… rather we joined over 44,000 people across the globe, all united for World Vision’s cause of bringing clean and accessible water infrastructure to kids, families and communities who can’t take their water for granted like we often do.
Today the Covenant community along with the other 6K participants from Team South Bend raised over $11,000, which will help World Vision bring clean and accessible water for a lifetime to more than 220 people.
World Vision is doing just what Jesus asked us to do… meet a basic human need by providing another person with a drink. For every $50 registration fee or sponsorship, World Vision is able to provide clean water infrastructure for one person for a lifetime. This kind of visionary work transforms lives, families and communities, as people no longer need to walk an average of 6 kilometers a day to collect their water, which is often not even clean or safe to drink. Accessible water means more time to go to school, grow crops, earn a living and be with family. Clean water brings life and health. Accessible and clean water quenches a basic human need, and its great for the Covenant Community to be apart of what Jesus is doing in the world through organisations like World Vision.
Join the Covenant Community when we Walk for Water in 2019!
