LDS Charities Brings Clean Water to Samoan Families

"Christmas has come early for some Samoan families, who have prayed fervently in recent years for a good Samaritan, to step forward with free water tanks," the Samoa Observer reported this week.

"Some families have not had access to a consistent source of water for many years, until they got on the list of 21 families, who were chosen to receive a 2000-litre water tank from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (L.D.S) Charities recently. 

Access to clean water is a right—not a privilege according to the United Nations. There is enough clean on the planet for everyone, but tragically, millions of children around the world go without water every day. If it was not for the intervention by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (L.D.S) Charities, there would still be families in Samoa, praying and hoping for a miracle."
