Water Filtration Solutions
CareLink’s Water Filter program helps families with one of their greatest basic needs: Clean water. Thousands of children fall victim to sometimes fatal illnesses each year that are completely avoidable through clean, safe water.
Many families are unaware of the inherent risks associated with the Honduran water supply, and so our program begins with spreading awareness within communities about the need to filter or boil local water. Then we provide locally-made inexpensive filters (made from recycled 5 gallon plastic pails) to those families with a need. These filters cost $25 and last approximately two years. Beyond that, families are provided financial counseling which enables them to save money in preparation for replacing the filters themselves in the future.
Life Changing Water…
As you might imagine, access to clean water changes everything for a family, in particular, the health of their children, whom are very vulnerable to the sicknesses associated with unsafe water. Chronic daily illnesses are drastically reduced, and the overall quality of life for this family is improved significantly.
Carelink seeks to provide these filters with private donations, corporate grants, and through the generous funding of family foundations. Some of our donors choose to provide 12 filters per year through a monthly pledge of $25.00. Or you can change the lives of these 12 families with an annual gift of $300!
Sawyer Products SP101 MINI Water Filtration System is similar to the type of filter systems we use in Honduras!
The world can be dark place, and at CareLink, we recognize that believers are called on to be a light to the world.
