Who We Are Global Water relief

Mission "GWR's mission is to provide safe, healthy and sustainable water giving life and life eternal to a sick and dying world in the name of Jesus Christ."

What’s Our Story

In 2008, GWR’s Founder, Steve Gough, was already in development with a new break through water filtration technology for industrial and residential energy saving applications. At that time a faith based organization visited his Sunday School class and presented the catastrophic statistics of human sickness and death caused by contaminated and polluted water sources globally, particularly in second and third world nations. He recognized then that the revolutionary water filtration technology which was in it’s development infancy then could eventually provide a solution to this catastrophe which was impacting almost one billion of God’s children at that time. That was the Ah-Ha moment that permanently changed the ultimate vision and mission of his companies. Today NanoClean technology is considered a breakthrough in the water filtration industry and is now growing leaps and bounds in residential and commercial applications on a global scale. It is also being launched into the GWR mission, which is the real “end game” he had envisioned almost a decade earlier.

Who We Are

The fine people of GWR all have one thing in common. We are all servants who are laser focused on a mission to help provide safe, healthy and sustainable water giving life and life eternal to a sick and dying world in the name of Jesus Christ. We provide breakthrough water filtration technology and systems to villages in second and third world countries whose current water sources are polluted, contaminated and/or unsustainable to support basic human life. We work with technology leaders such as NOV8iON Water as well as a variety of faith based non-profit organizations to solve one of the biggest socio-ecological problems that cause sickness and death to God’s children across the globe. Through baptisms of this new cleansing water, we ceremoniously present these life saving charitable solutions to them in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, thus allowing them to get to know His promise for life everlasting.
