I was amazed at the description of this crucial gift from the Compassion website:
Almost 900 million people worldwide lack access to clean drinking water. Children who do not have clean drinking water lose up to 2/3 of the nutrients in the food they eat because of water borne contaminants. Each filter can produce up to 500 gallons of clean water per day using nothing more than a common 5 gallon bucket and a hollow fiber membrane filter.
Provide the gift of clean water for a family.
Meet real needs and bring real joy with a Gift of Compassion.
