Last year our team worked alongside the village of Llamago and completed a project of installing 35 clean water filters that we started in 2014. A woman in the village had been using a filter for a year and her sister would come up from another village, Ocotillo, to also use the water filter. Both of them saw their families health improve. As we completed Llamago in 2015, the sister asked if we could work in her village to install filters. It so happened we had 10 extra filters, spoke with the village leaders, and together agreed to install those 10 filters in Ocotillo in 2015.
Now, we have a team going back to Ocotillo in 2016 to finish the water filter installation. They are in need of 60 water filters to complete the project and also start a new village this July, 2016. Would you consider donating a clean water filter to a family in Ocotillo?
What we do:
The Mission Water Project provides clean, safe water for children and families in the country of Honduras. Your donation builds partnerships with villages that opens the door to health, education, income, and a hope filled future. $120 provides one filter to a family of 10 to meet their daily water needs for 10 or more years!
Everyday, more than 5,000 children across the developing world die from diseases related to unclean water, that’s nearly one child every 15 seconds! A casualty rate that is simply staggering.
One simple filter. The Hyraid® BioSand Water Filter reduces the leading causes of death and disease in the developing world. It removes parasites, bacteria, and viruses from contaminated water making it safer to drink. It’s the first point-of-use technology of its kind that is designed to deliver safe water for a family with the expected life of more than 10 years.
It is simple really. Clean water saves lives. Our strategy focuses on a partnership with each village. We work along side local leaders to assist them in implementing a clean water project. That is where you come in; your donation provides filters, training, installation, and long term community development with follow up. This way you know your partnership with us and the village has the best possible return for investment to see healthy children and families succeed!
