EMF BROADCASTING Contemporary Christian K-LOVE and AIR1 radio networks donated nearly $2 million to COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL from a day long campaign for COMPASSION'S WATER OF LIFE safe water systems in RWANDA.
“The money raised will provide over 35,000 COMPASSION children and their families with safe drinking water for the rest of their lives,” said COMPASSION Sr. VP, USA, MARK HANLON. “Thanks to the tremendous generosity of the K-LOVE and AIR1 listeners, these kids and their families will never have to worry about diseases from unsafe drinking water."
"God continues to bless K-LOVE and AIR1 with a large stage from which to spread his word. We feel that part of being a good steward is to share this stage with like-minded ministries,” said K-LOVE/AIR1 Pres./CEO MIKE NOVAK. "COMPASSION and the 'WATER OF LIFE' campaign was a natural fit. The K-LOVE and AIR1 listeners blessed about 35,000 families in RWANDA with these remarkable life-giving water filters, by donating $1.9 million to COMPASSION in a one-day event. To that, I say, ‘Praise God.'"
