Living Waters for the World

Living Waters for the World (LWW) is a mission resource of the Synod of Living Waters of the Presbyterian Church (USA). LWW trains and equips volunteer teams to provide clean water in needy areas throughout the developing world. LWW water systems and educational programs address the niche in world water provisioning in which communities have an adequate and available but contaminated water supply.

The LWW training model is a relational one that emphasizes local partners leading health and hygiene training and constructing the clean water system and that their U.S. partners mentor and support them throughout the project. A covenant relationship is established for each water project, involving four or more trips by the U.S. partner to the installation site.

LWW water treatment systems are sized for small communities and are usually located in clinics, churches, schools, orphanages, community centers, and hospitals.
