Isn’t it amazing that we can go up to a faucet and clean, healthy water comes out? We are very blessed and fortunate here to have water that is clean without any effort on our part. Over in Africa, parents have a choice: I give my children this filthy, diseased, worm-infested water that will make my children sick and possibly kill them, OR I don’t give them this water and they die of dehydration. Everyday, tens of thousands of people die due to lack of clean drinking water. Surely, this isn’t the first time you’ve heard this, or the first time you’ve thought about it, or even the first time I’ve promoted a like charity on my blog. Today, I want to tell you about Compassion. K-Love is promoting them today on air. Compassion gives these filters to families in Rwanda. Their function is similar to that of a kidney dialysis machine. You can pour water of any sort through this filter and clean, safe drinking water comes out. This filter will provide water for a family for a lifetime. It only requires occasional backwashing to maintain. It baffles me how easily we can give safe, clean water to those who need it. One of these filters cost only $55. $55 to provide a family with clean water for LIFE. $55 dollars to help little children live past their childhood. Didn’t Jesus tell us that whatever we did unto the least of these we were doing unto Him? Well, Jesus’ children are thirsty. Give them something to drink. I hope you’ll join me in saving lives with a few clicks of the mouse and a small donation. Check out these links for more information:
