The Water Filtration Ministry started in 2010 and is a small non-profit organization with a very unique ministry bringing relief to communities around the world who suffer needlessly from lack of access to clean water.
Did you know that 663 million people on the planet don’t have clean water? When we learned about the crisis and that a few people can actually make a huge impact, we decided to get involved. Today we’re working in 3 countries helping hundreds and thousands of new people find access to safe drinking water.
We believe that providing clean drinking water restores hope by enabling our partners to make a whole-life impact in the communities they serve through their broader development activities. We desire to see access to clean water enable schools to thrive, people to get back to work, farming to provide enough food to earn a living, and suffering to be alleviated as health improves.
We believe the issues facing Africa, India and even our own country, the Philippines, are not simply today’s problems. Access to clean water and properly built latrines is a problem in the Philippines, as more than 26 million Filipinos use unhygienic facilities. It’s not uncommon for seepage to end up in culverts or in the ocean. Poor sanitation and hygiene can lead to waterborne diseases such as cholera and dysentery. Children are one of the most vulnerable populations to these diseases, and maintaining proper hygiene practices can be challenging schools, by providing clean water, and hygiene education.
Classrooms lacks clean drinking water, toilets, and hand-washing stations. We know that lack of clean water stands in the way of tomorrow’s hope. And we’re sure that together we can change that. After a disaster strikes, water sources that were once clean often become contaminated. People with limited food and no shelter are forced to drink water that is dirty to survive. Your donation will help us provide tanks, filters kits, hygiene training, and other essential measures to protect water sources and prevent the spread of disease. Just one 55 gallon filter tank can meet the daily needs of 32 families at 5 gallons per day enough for them to drink, cook and hygiene, who otherwise wouldn’t have access to clean water.
Boiling also comes with a cost, because it drains a family’s income by using up precious fuel resources. We can provide a family with a better alternative. Our filters require no fuel, electricity, or chemicals and can be used for years to provide clean water. That’s a huge number. In fact, it’s twice the number of people who live in the United States. 1 in 10 people in our world don’t have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without. We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily journey. Carry 80 pounds of water in yellow fuel cans. Dig with their children in sand for water. Line up at a well and wait eight hours for a turn.
I thank the Parshooters Golf Club and ministry supporters for believing in our ministry and for the overwhelming generosity of our members that many times I’m speechless when a member come to me and hand his prize. I am pleased and honored that we can serve your barangays back home. I need your prayers so our services will grow the way we believed God intends for us to grow.
