How it works

Compassion Water of Life contains a bucket, hose, filter, connector and a syringe that’s used occasionally for rinsing the filter with clean water. Training on how to use Compassion Water of Life and hygiene education are provided with every system delivered, to ensure positive long-term results and improved health.

Compassion Water of Life is based on the same technology developed for kidney dialysis.

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.

A new system can be set up and ready to use in under 5-minutes.

After pouring dirty water into the bucket from sources such as lakes, rivers, ponds or puddles, the water flows through the filter and comes out completely safe to drink.

Compassion 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 upon the level of contaminants in the water, some systems may require more frequent rinsing. Unlike other filters, this makes the filter sustainable and never needing to be replaced.

Providing safe water is a critical part of Compassion’s holistic child development programs that begin with a pregnant mother and continue through childhood to young adulthood. This proven, one-on-one approach is releasing more than one million children from poverty in 26 developing countries today.


Each Water of Life system can provide over 1 million gallons of safe water.

If the average person drinks their ‘required’ 64 ounces of water a day and lives to age 80, they will consume 14,600 gallons of water in their lifetime.
