Clean Water

In Blog by Libby

Pure water is a serious issue in developing countries. Around the world, 1.1 billion people still lack adequate access to clean drinking water, and 2.6 billion people still lack adequate sanitation. The Water for Life Project aims to place water filters in over 600 homes in Kigoma, a town of about 200,000 people in Tanzania, in East Africa. In association with Kigoma Baptist Hospital, filters will be placed in the homes of patients with water borne illnesses. The program will affect 3,000-6,000 people. Providing a safe water source to a family will impact many people. It is also a means of getting into homes of people to provide the filter, to follow up on the filter and minister to them.
