Transforming Lives with Water 4 Mercy - Deborah's Journey

June 2024

Dear Water 4 Mercy Community,

We bring you an inspiring story of transformation and hope, showcasing how something as simple as clean water can profoundly change lives.


Deborah's Journey

In a small village in Tanzania, life was a daily struggle for young Deborah. Every day, she and her friend Lilian walked on a 10-hour journey to fetch water. This dangerous task consumed their time and energy, leaving little room for dreams and aspirations. Deborah, who hopes of becoming a doctor, found it impossible to attend school regularly due to the relentless drought and the pressing need to secure water for her family.

But one fateful day, as Deborah returned home, she witnessed a gathering in the village square. The village chief was holding a meeting, and a lovely stranger stood before the crowd, sharing astonishing news: fresh, clean water was coming to their village. Deborah could hardly believe it.

With the arrival of Water 4 Mercy, Deborah's life changed dramatically. The organization provided a sustainable water source, bringing not just clean water but also hope and opportunity to her village. Deborah could now attend school regularly, her health improved, and the entire community began to thrive. Now, Deborah is the top in her class studying to be a doctor.

Deborah’s journey from hardship to hope is a powerful testament to the transformative power of clean water. Her full story, is beautifully captured in our book, "The Most Wonderful Rain", written by Nermine Khouzam Rubin and, Susan Joy Bellavance.
