Clean Water for Honduras


Safe drinking water is scarce world-wide.  It is no different in Honduras. Greater Works Fall Tour will visit Fayetteville, Arkansas with the Rhett Canipe Concert benefitting Clean Water for Honduras.  You are invited to attend this concert November 5, 2010, at the Christian Life Cathedral Student Center, 7:00PM.  Please pass this along to your friends and family.

 

Greater Works is a ministry from Dallas, Texas, providing clean drinking water world-over.  Greater Works has committed to drill a clean-water well for the women's shelter at the public hospital in La Esperanza.  This is the only free hospital available to the Lenca Indians.  Expectant mothers hike five hours, then travel two hours in the back of a pickup to reach the hospital where they will give birth.  They arrive at the hospital as much as two weeks early. The women's shelter provides a bed for the expectant mothers and their families.  Unfortunately the hospital provides no food and only unsafe drinking water to the women. 

 

Two years ago, Heaven's Reach Ministries, along with Mercy International, initiated a communal garden project to provide food.  The garden failed for lack of water for irrigation during the dry season.  This water project will supply not only desperately needed clean drinking water for the women's shelter, but also indispensable irrigation water for the communal garden. 

 

Please come and enjoy the music of Rhett Canipe, and support this important project.  $10 donation suggested at the door.
