BENEFITING: BEND FIRE FIGHTERS FOUNDATION
ERSLA.ORG facilitates the delivery of simple but effective water filters to Nicaraguan families at risk. For the price of a holiday gift, you can help prevent this needless suffering by providing water filters to one or more families in one of the most impoverished countries in the world. Local firefighters are teaming up with ERSLA to help identify the families most at risk and provide them with a water filtration system that will keep them safe and healthy. Simple, yet effective, these water filtration systems can eliminate up to 99.88% of water born disease agents. They filter enough water for the daily use of a typical family. The filter is produced in Nicaragua under the highest standards of quality control and can last for more than 5 years. Each $50.00 donation will purchase a ceramic water filter system for a needy family. The filters will be delivered to the families by local firefighters. In addition to delivering filters, the firemen map the GPS coordinates of each home, inspect wiring and provide safety education.
