Water For Life -Hurricane Relief
In the past 5 years , we have sent over 4500 of our water filters to 16 countries, we are funding wells for Kenya, and assisted in all types of water relief projects in developing countries as well as offered relief to flood victims in the United States.
We are currently raising money to offer relief to Hurricane Matthew victims in Haiti and Caribbean countries. Your contribution will go directly to delivering water filters for Haiti, a country still on the mend from a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in 2010 that left 1.5million homeless .
Hurricane Matthew has already taken 800 lives in just a few short days with that number expected to rise.
Water for Life is raising funds to supply water filters through our two main partners who are currently on the ground in Haiti. Those two main partners are Filter of Hope, who are focusing on families in the Lupin Area of Haiti, and Mission of Hope, who are focusing on the families in the Dame Marie regions.
The goal is to provide filters to families who are stranded or trapped as a result of the hurricane and are now unable to get water from a safe water source.
Cholera is the biggest threat to life in these types of disasters where contaminated water worsens as it stagnates. There are already cases being reported at local clinics.
The need for your contribution is immediate. In water disaster situations, the quicker the people are able to filter contaminated water , the greater the chance of saving lives.
100% of all donations for this project, will go towards supplying our life saving water filters so that thousands of children and families have safe drinking water.
Unlike large organizations and other NGOs, 100% of your donation goes to water filters. We cover all overhead through other means.
It is our contributors that make the difference in the lives of people we serve and we appreciate your generosity.

500 = $8000
600 = $9600
We have already sent 600 to Haiti. Pictures attached are of filters in the field we sent to Jean Charles President & Founder at SOSAEC HAITI. His 100 filters have already been put into use and the families are super grateful.
He actually recently saw our work on Facebook and reached out to us directly. We sent him a coupon for 100 filters and within 2 days he had training, filters and working filter systems to help families in Haiti have clean water!
Please spread the word and donate to help us cover the costs. We are borrowing from other programs and need to keep them funded but the people of Haiti needed our help most desperately.
This is the greatest work of our lives!
Attached is the copy of the voucher from Sawyer Water Filters authorizing the pick up of 500 filters in Haiti to our partners.
500 filters is the equivalent of 75,000 gallons of clean water per day which our partners will begin helping distribute as soon as Tuesday 10-18-2016.
We are so close to our first milestone of $8000 that we went ahead and ordered our first 500 filters to be donated to Mission of Hope - Haiti. Josh Hodges and Jenny Leigh help manage the distribution of the filters. The amazing concept about our model is we don't have to pay customs or shipping to get the filters to the families because www.sawyer.com has distribution already in Haiti.
Our partners at MofH simply pick up the filters and get them to the urgent areas of need. Immediate impact! 500 filters is the potential equivalent of 75,000 gallons of water per day
