Imagine a Day Without Water – It’s Reality for Many of the People Served by Mission of Love Charities

On October 20, we will welcome people who need water for basic necessities – as we do Monday through Friday, every week of the year.

This is a grim reality for people who do not have the economic basis to sustain their lives. Many of these people come to Mission of Love Charities for help. Often, we are able to give them water to drink, access to showers, and access to a washer and dryer. But that is just for that day. And what about tomorrow? And the days after that?

And lack of water is only one component in the many threats to the daily lives and the dignity of the individuals who find themselves in this predicament.

Sure, there are places like Mission of Love Charities who can offer help. Sure, there are government programs that provide basic sustenance. But when you’re out on the streets, faced with innumerable challenges of daily living for yourself and your family, you often find yourself frozen with depression and the inability to cope.
