BENEFITING: 4others

THE STORY:

Today, about 1 billion people lack access to clean water.  Children in poor environments often carry 1,000 parasitic worms in their bodies at any time.  80% of all diseases in the developing world are related to unclean water and poor sanitation.  As a result, millions, especially young children, die as a result each year.  This includes 1.4 million child deaths from preventable diarrheal diseases due to lack of clean water.

But we can make a difference!  In 2007, we launched the African Water Project when we discovered that it takes only $1 to provide clean water for 1 person for 1 year.  Never before had we come across an opportunity to do so much good with so few resources... until now.

Today, through the use of NEW technology...

$55 can provide clean water for a FAMILY for LIFE!

Using the same technology developed for kidney dialysis, our partner, Compassion International, has developed a new water filter that effectively removes the deadly bacteria from the dirty water and produces clean water, safe to drink!  (See the video for a demo.)

This Water of Life filter is simple to use, and unlike other filters, it's also sustainable and never needs to be replaced.  

The filter can actually produce over 1 MILLION GALLONS of clean water.  Since the average person drinks only 17,000 gallons in a lifetime, this filter can easily provide for a family's life needs.  In fact, it could provide 64 people clean water for life!

For more information on how it works, visit http://water.compassion.com/how-it-works/.

Help us provide a FAMILY WATER FOR LIFE for just $55!  

100% of the donations we receive will directly purchase these water filters.  (Please consider adding an extra few dollars to cover Crowdrise's processing fees.)
