“Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14

Cisterns provide a consistent source of water for partnering farmers.

Father’s Day is almost here and there are countless things to thank our dads for: afternoons passed exploring new hiking trails, moments spent teaching us to throw a baseball, hours worked to provide food and shelter, and years given to encouraging, teaching, and shaping us.

Five children in Haiti are thanking their father for something else – the gift of water. Matelhomme Delisca shares how a Plant With Purpose cistern allows him to provide for his family. He plants 100 trees every year thanks to the water from the cistern Plant With Purpose helped him construct. Because of the consistent source of water and the trees, he says, “I am getting more crops even in bad seasons. The trees planted are both protection for my farms and also a long-term investment for my family.”

What better way to thank your father for all he has done than to donate a cistern share in his name?
