Project Details

  • Project Description:

    Water is a vital ingredient to life. And yet, clean, safe, and abundant drinking water is a luxury in many communities in rural areas. Fertilizer and sewer water seeps into water systems, contaminating the areas drinking water. Some villages do not have water pipes, and villagers must walk miles to a water source. Ceramic water filter distribution provides safe drinking water at a low cost.

    A ceramic water filter removes the harmful bacteria from the water and provides more than enough drinking water for a family. National churches who have a burden to care for and share with people in the rural villages disburse the filters and share the gospel with them in their homes.

    Your gift will supply the filters and the training for local believers to distribute the filters or lay water pipes, if necessary. In this way, local churches will make a long-term impact with the gospel in rural communities throughout this region.

  • Cultural Information:

    Animism, the belief that spirits control everything, is the most prevalent belief system. When children get sick from drinking polluted water or just the common cold, parents will take their children to the local shaman to appease the spirits in hopes their child will recover.

  • Geographic Information:

    More than 45 million people live in rural villages in the mountains of this country. Many villages are very remote and difficult to reach. The project location may depend on weather and temperature. More than 200 different people groups live in this region, most who have no access to the gospel.
