GLOBAL AID NETWORK® (GAIN®)
WHO IS GAIN?
As the relief and development ministry of
Cru Global Aid Network® (GAiN®)
expresses the love of Jesus Christ in the
toughest places on earth by relieving human
suffering and restoring dignity.
GAiN accomplishes their mission through
funding, facilitating, and carrying out
relief and development projects through
trusted partners worldwide who are
committed to spiritual multiplication.
THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS
Diseases from unsafe water and
lack of basic sanitation kill more
people each year than all forms of
violence, including war.*
Nearly one in five deaths are
caused by diarrhea, that’s more
than malaria, AIDS, and measles
combined.*
*sources from UNDP, WHO, UNICEF
For children under age five, waterrelated diseases are the leading
cause of death.*
THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS
Lack of access to clean water and
sanitation kills children at a rate
equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing
every four hours.*
No intervention has greater overall
impact upon national development
and public health than safe drinking
water and the proper disposal of
human waste.
A few years ago a child died every
15 seconds from drinking
contaminated water, now it’s every
21 seconds. While we celebrate the
accomplishment, we still have work
to do.

WATER FILTERS
One filter can supply clean water
for up to 20 people for 5-10 years.
They filter approximately 5 gallons
of water in under 20 minutes.
EDUCATION
Education is used to train our incountry partners how to use health
and hygiene training as a tool to
build disciples.

Education helps promote sustainability and community ownership.
Every water initiative is accompanied by our
Health and Hygiene Training along with the
gospel presentation. Each training builds on
foundational health principles using stories from
the Bible.

allow individuals to see tangible improvements in
their health, and experience the love of Christ.

FROM THE FIELD
“Because of you my family and community
now have access to clean water. And
because of the training we are able to help
teach others about sanitation as well as
having an open door to reach others with
the gospel message.”

FROM THE FIELD
“Your help came at a time when we had
nothing: no future and only diseased water
to drink. Your help has given us life and the
hope to go on.”
