Water Mission designs, builds, and distributes water treatment systems in far flung corners of the world where people live without safe drinking water due to natural disasters, extreme poverty, and inadequate infrastructure. Operating from their campus on the old Navy base in North Charleston, Water Mission says it has provided more than 3.6 million people around the world with clean drinking water.

Founders George and Molly Greene started the organization in 1998 after working to help communities in Honduras affected by Hurricane Mitch. Today, Water Mission and a staff of over 250 around the world work with a firm grounding in their Christian faith to bring clean, safe water to those in need. To date, they have over 550 projects underway in nations like Haiti, Peru, Tanzania, Korea, and Indonesia. —Sam Spence
