Neverthirst provides clean water through the building of water wells and other water projects for towns and villages in undeveloped countries such as Sudan, South Sudan, India, Cambodia and Nepal. It is Neverthirst's goal to provide both drinking water, and more importantly spiritual water to the residents in these areas. The process begins by choosing trusted indigenous partners in these countries. These individuals and organizations are committed to empowering communities through access to water that will continue to flow. After selecting local partners, the next step is to identify the people who need clean water the most and to establish a network of professionals to install the wells. Neverthirst also provides filtration systems while sharing the Gospel with the surrounding community.
