Some of us may have experienced a time in our lives without clean water. Some of us may be familiar with missing a few meals. In refugee camps across the world, this experience is often a way of life, not a temporary condition.
To date, BLESS has funded 18 water wells in and around refugee camps in Northern Africa. These wells not only provide drinking water, but also water for sustainable crops and livestock, to provide both food and occupation for many refugees. Next to our wells, we partner and plant churches and build schools, to further the sustainability of the tribes so they can learn and be a part of their own solution.

The Satisfy project is rooted in the goodness of God, revealed in meeting the physical needs of the world’s most desperate.
When the paralyzed man's friends lowered him through the roof into the presence of Jesus, He did not only heal his physical condition. He met his spiritual needs as well.
By drilling wells, providing irrigation and ovens, Empower One's "SATISFY" provides refugees with sustainability for the physical. By planting a church next to each well, local Christian leaders can provide the Hope of living water also.
THE FARM PROJECT
The average person makes 226 decisions about food everyday… yes, everyday! Where will I eat, who will I eat with, when will I eat and how much will I eat. Not so on the war torn border of Uganda and South Sudan. There, they desire just to eat.
In this region, political conflict and economic problems have brought wide-spread displacement, violence and food shortage. Famine is severe. Enter The Farm Project.
The Farm Project works with families who are struggling to survive. They create sustainable business projects that provide an honest living for those in this difficult region of Africa. They’re not just providing opportunity and food, but hope where there has been none.
