Full details from Paul Cocking, LW International Development Coordinator/AACUK Coordinator on


For over 30 years, Living Water International has been doing effective evangelism and discipleship through its

Adopt-A-Child Programme initially in Guatemala, then also in Albania together with other mission fields. 

‘AAC’ is about ministry to the whole person….through 13 feeding centres, Bible and discipleship classes, medical/dental and pastoral care plus Church-planting; thus reaching ‘children’ of all ages and backgrounds.

There are charitable office bases in New Zealand, Germany, Canada, USA and UK who together relationally support the LWI mission fields.


Growing opportunities to fulfil the Great Commission means we are looking to diversify our UK/IRL financial support base and also develop and prioritise our resources, so as to facilitate further growth in our mission fields!
