ORLANDO, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Jesus turned water into wine, and one organization is doing just the opposite to help the needy and thirsty.

International non-profit organization Water For People will be turning wine into fresh, clean drinking water for developing countries on July 29 for their “Wine For Us” fundraiser at the Orange County Regional History Center in Orlando, Florida.

They’re holding a wine tasting for attendees, who are urged to give back to their fellow man just like Jesus did and donate towards improving water sanitation in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

And all the wine flowing will hopefully loosen a few wallets at the event.

The money raised will go towards giving needy areas professional development advice and technical services, including building spring-fed community water mains, wells equipped with hand pumps, and teaching locals what they need to know to keep the water clean.
