WHY DOES Safe Water MATTER?

Water is easy to overlook. It is odorless. Colorless. Flavorless. But what if the water you drank made you sick? What if it tasted of algae and smelled of sulfur? What if it was cloudy and murky?

You wouldn’t drink it.

But for a child in poverty, the choice is not just between safe or unsafe water. It is between waterborne disease or dehydration.

FOR $79, YOU CAN CHANGE A CHILD’S Future.

Every day more than 3,800 children die of easily preventable water-related diseases such as cholera and typhoid. When you give to Compassion’s Water of Life, you are not only giving safe drinking water. You are also protecting children from life-threatening diseases and enabling them to be healthy enough for regular school attendance. Your gift will allow children to dream and reach their full potential.

Local Church
LOCAL CHURCH

Compassion’s programs are all operated through frontline local churches who know the specific needs of children in their communities. At these churches, children and their families come to receive training in the importance of safe water and how to use the Water of Life systems. Children learn how to operate and maintain their systems, and dedicated staff closely monitor the health of the children we serve.

Health
HEALTH

It’s not enough for a family to simply have safe drinking water. Compassion’s Water of Life means children have enough safe water to wash their hands and brush their teeth. Mothers will be able to cook food in sanitary conditions, and fathers will miss less work because they have access to safe water. One system can improve the health of an entire family.

Education
EDUCATION

Creating a healthy environment for a child does not end with delivering a safe water system to their home. Children and their families must also learn the importance of hydration and sanitary habits. Your support enables Compassion health specialists to teach children that brushing their teeth and washing their hands can stop the spread of disease. Parents also learn about preventing dehydration, using clean water for cooking and drinking, and the importance of good hygiene.

ROHIT’S Story

In Rohit’s remote village in northern India, the rain has not come. Their community is gripped by drought, so each day Rohit and his sister walk to the one well that still has water. But the buckets they bring home are filled with more than water.

Rohit carries home heavy buckets that are filled with diseases and skin rashes and dehydration. His family bathes in this water. Washes their clothes in it. And drinks it.

This is their reality. Or rather, it was their reality.

Because now, Rohit and his family have a Compassion Water of Life safe water system in their home. Rohit and his father quickly and easily assembled the system, and within five minutes Rohit, his sister, his brother and his parents had safe water. Gone were the impurities. Filtered away were the diseases.

Rohit no longer has to wonder if the water he hauls home will make him sick.

“It will be very good and helpful, this filter, because our parents, they don’t know the importance of water, whether it is good or bad, they don’t know,” says Rohit. “Because of this we will have safe drinking water, and because of this, sickness will not come to our family.”

FREQUENTLY-ASKED Questions

Q: How does Compassion’s Water of Life work?

A: Compassion's Water of Life system consists of two buckets and a hose, filter, connector, and a syringe that’s used periodically for rinsing the filter with clean water. Training in how to use Compassion's Water of Life, as well as hygiene education, is provided with every system delivered, to ensure positive long-term results and improved health. A new system can be set up and ready to use in under five minutes!

Compassion’s Water of Life is based on the same technology developed for kidney dialysis and has been tested and proven by doctors as well as the United Nations. Each filter is made up of tiny micro tubes with pores hundreds of times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. These pores remove deadly bacteria and allow only clean water to pass through for drinking. The filter effectively eliminates cholera, typhoid, E. coli, amoebic dysentery, and many other bacterial contaminants.

Compassion's Water of Life is also very easy to maintain. When the flow-rate slows, the user simply disconnects the primary filter unit and rinses it with clear water. Depending on the level of contaminants in the water, some systems may require more frequent rinsing. Unlike other filters, this makes the filter sustainable and as long as it is properly maintained, it will never need to be replaced.

Q: Does it REALLY provide enough safe water for life?

A: Yes! In fact, Compassion’s Water of Life can provide more than 1 million gallons of safe water. The average person drinks about 16,000 gallons of water in his or her life, so each system will actually provide for an entire family, and beyond!

Q: Can I give Compassion’s Water of Life to my sponsored child?

A: At this time we do not have a way to provide a Water of Life system to specific children. Compassion is committed to making sure that every child who needs safe water will be able to access safe water through wells, boreholes, and Compassion’s Water of Life. Water of Life safe water systems are distributed to children when that solution is the best option to provide safe water to the child.

Q: What does my $79 cover?

A: Your $79 will provide a complete Water of Life safe water system delivered to the child and his or her family by a local church. You will also provide knowledge about hygiene and safety through training and education, and help fund other water sources, such as wells for communities, which are installed when deemed most appropriate.
