Our Community Projects

We believe a project is successful when it is sustainable and creates holistic transformation. That is why we see each project as a community asset that is self-sustainable and lasting. Each produces safe water and brings health, while also creating jobs, producing economic benefits for each community. Over 400 communities across the globe are home to a Healing Waters project and we have you to thank for that!

The proof is in the numbers

Staffed Countries

Dominican Republic

Established: 2002

While some waterborne illnesses are still common in the Dominican Republic, accessible clean water and health & hygiene education is helping to improve their health and increase their hope. With ongoing strategic partnerships with Compassion International and Food for the Hungry, we look forward to reaching many more Dominican communities with safe water!


Established: 2005

Beginning with a community in Patzun, we have now installed over 80 projects around the country! Our clean water solutions have been implemented in both urban and rural communities of all sizes. With a high risk of water-borne illnesses, we aim to provide reliable, safe water so that all Guatemalan communities enjoy better health and increased opportunity.


Established: 2012

After the earthquake in 2010, Haiti’s water sources were both stressed and contaminated. Due to this need, Healing Waters began installing projects there in 2012 to decrease the risk of water-borne diseases and help provide communities with access to affordable, safe water. Although the majority of our programs are located in and around Port-au-Prince, with the help of Food for the Hungry and Compassion International-Haiti, we hope to continue meeting the needs of thirsty individuals throughout Haiti one community at a time.


Established: 2004

Although we have been primarily focused on the state of Chiapas, last year we expanded our clean water programs into the state of Oaxaca and are extremely are excited by the momentum we have gained there. We are encouraged to see how safe water is transforming communities in both of these southern states and hope to continue spreading access to safe water throughout Mexico in the future.

Still rebuilding from decades of conflict, millions of people in Cambodia still lack access to clean water. Located on a rice field, the purification system serves employees of the local rice mill as well as members of the local church. In a country where dirty water is often bottled and advertised as clean water, this system is providing the people of the community with a source of purified water they can rely on to be clean.


Established: 2013

To address the shortage of potable water, we installed our first water purification system in Colombia in 2013 with the help of the PIER Institute. Located in the community of Macedonia, the project serves an indigenous population living on the Amazon River. Having previously relied on rain water collection, the purification system means that the community now has year round access to safe drinking water.

El Salvador

Established: 2011

Because of the number of people without access to potable water, Healing Waters installed a water purification system in the community of Santa Lucia in 2011 with the help of Riverbend Church. In addition to providing water, this system is instilling hope in the people of Santa Lucia through better health and better opportunities.


Established: 2013

With a large mining industry in the mountains, heavy metals often contaminate their waterways, making potable water difficult to come by. With the help of World Orphan Fund we installed a water purification system in the community of Renacer in 2013. Bringing new hope and new opportunities to the community, the people of Renacer now have a source of clean water they know they can rely on.


Established: 2015

High population growth and high poverty rates mean Kenya’s need for safe water is growing. Because of this great need, Healing Waters installed a water purification system in Embakassi in 2015. With the help of our strategic partner Jibu, this system is now providing safe water and jobs to help turn thirsting individuals into thriving communities.


Established: 2013

Since 2013, we have installed 8 projects in or around urban centers to increase water sales and maximize the number of Rwandans being served. Run as sustainable water stores, these water purification systems are owned and run by local Rwandans. Empowering locals to run their own business, this franchise model not only helps provide Rwandans with accessible clean water, it also provides jobs and sustainable income.

Sierra Leone

Established: 2013

Although the civil war in Sierra Leone ended in 2002, the country still faces considerable challenges, including millions of inhabitants who lack access to safe water. The water filtration system here serves both the local community and the clinic, which provides health services to over 7,000 people each year. The water produced not only allows the local community to thrive, but also improves the quality of care given to patients by providing them with a safe water source for drinking and treatment.


Established: 2013

Torn apart by civil war and struggling to rebuild, Somalia remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Only 1 in 3 people in Somalia have access to safe water. Today we have 6 systems providing the people of Somalia with accessible clean water. Our hope is that through these water purification systems, the people of Somalia will be freed from the burden of water-borne illnesses and have the opportunity to thrive.


Established: 2013

Located throughout the country, our clean water programs in Uganda are a combination of our Holistic Transformation Model and water store franchises implemented through our strategic partnership with Jibu. With many of our systems in Uganda utilizing solar power, we continue to expand access to safe water thereby reaching the less and least reached.
