The Living Water Community has been supporting thousands of needy persons since 1975 and continues to do so with an abundance of generosity from citizens. Today they continue to extend a helping hand to families seeking refuge in Trinidad after fleeing lives of turmoil in their homeland. During the 2018 Christmas season, the group provided over 1,500 hampers to asylum seekers and needy families and on Christmas Day, share 2,500 meals to the less fortunate. The Living Water Community also continues to feed some 800 families nationwide every month and does much more without fanfare.
