Sawyer Life-Saving Water Filters Arrive in Kenya & Bangladesh
Video updates from our mission fields as the Sawyer water filters arrived! Glory to GOD!
2.2 million deaths are attributed to diarrhea, mostly from dirty water, and 1.8 million children aged under five DIE YEARLY due to water-borne diseases. This equates to one infant every 20 seconds! You can make a difference!
“Nearly two million children a year die for want of clean water and proper sanitation while the world’s poor often pay more for their water than people in Britain or the US, according to a major new report. The United Nations Development Programme, in its annual Human Development report, argues that 1.1 billion people do not have safe water and 2.6 billion suffer from inadequate sewerage. This is not because of water scarcity but poverty, inequality and government failure. Many sub-Saharan Africans get less than 20 litres of water a day and two-thirds have no proper toilets. By contrast, the average Briton uses 150 litres a day while Americans are the world’s most profligate, using 600 litres a day. Phoenix, Arizona, uses 1,000 litres per person on average – 100 times as much as Mozambique.” (Excerpt from The Guardian)
