Give Life…Give Water

Water of Life. If you are like me, I take water for granted. I turn on the faucet to wash my hands, bathe and use it to do laundry or flush the toilet. I buy bottled water to drink. In Rwanda, children and families get their water from ponds. This water is dirty, brown…full of bacteria and animal products and makes whoever drinks it ill. Sometimes the people will go days before drinking the water, knowing that when they do, they or their babies will get sick. Compassion International is giving families a personal filtration system. This system is used by the UN and by some of our military. You can take dirty, unclean, unsafe water and pour it through this small filtering system and get clean, safe and pure drinking water! The system lasts for life! Compassion International is trying to put a filter into the hands of each family that needs one. For a $55 donation, you can give a family the gift of water for themselves and their children! If you cannot donate, pass the word along. Look on the web page to see the dirty glass of water transformed to clean water. Amazing.
