Do you know how bad the water is in Chiapas, Mexico. Sometimes it’s easier not to know. We live safe secure lives most of the time knowing we can turn on the tap trusting the water is safe. Our brothers and sisters in Christ in most of the developing world know they can not trust the water.
Providing access to clean water saves lives by reducing sickness and sometimes fatal water borne diseases and saves money spent buying pure water or the time and energy spent cutting down trees to purify it by boiling.
At the medical clinic we evaluate and treat many patients suffering from water borne disease. The cycle of illness and death is tough to break but its not impossible to make a difference.
The Sawyer filters we bring are a LIFE SAVING TECHNOLOGY. They are portable, long-lasting and effective! It is as simple as it gets. Families are able to hook up a filter to a bucket literally in minutes that will serve up to 20 people for over 10 years. The men can take the filter with them out in the fields where they work and connect it to a soda bottle full of the abundant surface water that is unfortunately contaminated.
We have been encouraged and blessed by seeing the enthusiastic response to providing medical care and the delivery of water filters and training on their use. The full time doctor and nurse in the clinic are thrilled they can get to the root cause of so many of the problems they see. Patients we saw immediately understand the value of a filter that can solve one of their life’s great burdens and worries.
What we are doing in Chiapas is working well. We invite you to partner with us. Working together we can change lives for the better.
Only Jesus can provide living water. Until he returns, we will keep bringing filters.
