Water Filters For Puerto Rico

Three weeks after Hurricane Maria decimated Puerto Rico 40% of the population is still without water. There are many reports of people contracting Leptospirosis and other health issues from water contamination, which is resulting in a growing number of deaths. Even those with running water need to boil it to make the water safe to drink, but this is impossible for most people in Puerto Rico, where 90% of the population is still without power. We live in San Juan, and our family is raising money to purchase Sawyer PointONE water filters that our friends in Puerto Rico will distribute to areas with the most need. Using technology derived from kidney dialysis, these filters ensure that bacteria which cause Leptospirosis, Cholera, Typhoid and E-coli are filtered out. We have gone directly to the manufacturer, which offers a significantly reduced price for filters sent to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. ALL money raised will go towards the cost of water filters. Our family will pay for the shipping costs, while our friends will donate their time and gas to get the filters to those in need. The cost for Sawyer PointONE water filters (with bucket adapter kit) is: Each kit: $12.57 Box of 50: $628.50 Family and friends, please private message me if you prefer to send me a check or if you want to make a bank to bank donation. All donations are welcome and will make a difference!
