Clean Water for the Dominican Republic
About This Mission Project
Many Dominican and Haitian family men work 12 hours a day in the sugar cane fields to support their families. Every day, the women and children walk to the nearest river or water source to collect water for cooking, bathing and drinking. The water is contaminated with bacteria and parasites, but they have no access to clean water.
Project Clean Water will provide 100 families with a specially filtered bucket. Water that is poured through the filtration system will be made safe and clean. These five-gallon buckets help families to be healthier and have a better life. Being healthier means not missing work or school.
- $55 provides one filter and bucket to a family in the Dominican Republic.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $6,615 to purchase 100 buckets with special clay filters and a five-gallon container to hold the filtered water. The purpose is to provide clean water for approximately 100 families in the Dominican Republic.
This project will be managed by missionary Madeline Flores-Lopez, who will educate everyone who receives a filter on the need for safe, clean water. It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall health of these families and also promote community fellowship.
