The water filter project is an outreach / social assistance program. The program is designed to create safe drinking water for the general population. The problem that exists with the water is that many people live on the flood plain and it is very difficult and costly to dig wells.
When wells are dug they become contaminated by rust or other debris. This makes the filters a viable option. The mission is able to build and install each filter for US$50.
This project has literally saved the lives of many along the river, especially babies who would die of dysentery. Currently there is a two man work team building the filters daily.
To date, we have installed around 400 filters. Thirst Relief International is our main sponsor and they has provided great assistance in the success of this project. CDR Porto de Moz is the Non-government organization that handles the water filter project.
This project has been instrumental in evangelizing unreached communities and creating open doors to other communities. We are excited about this project because it provides a cost affordable water solution and at the same time creates opportunity for evangelism.
