Chester Camp Raises Money For Water Filtration In Hati

Campers at Grace Day Camp raised money to help provide water filtration to those in Haiti.

CHESTER, NJ — Campers at the Grace Day Camp in Chester spent their summer raising money to help provide clean water to people living in Haiti.

Throughout the course of the mission project, campers raised over $2,200 to help purchase Sawyer Water Filters. Each filter can clean 1 million liters of water, and will be delivered to Haiti by a ministry program.

The water filters are similar to what campers and hikers use during long trips outdoors. They use hollow fiber membrane filters to clean out viruses, heavy metals, chemicals, and other types of contaminants from the drinking supply.

Run by the Grace Bible Chapel, the Grace campers engage in charitable mission projects every year.

"We are so thankful for the camper's outpouring of love for the people of Haiti," the camp said.

One of the most popular, and readily available, means of tick prevention these days is the use of permethrin. Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment is easy to find at most any sporting goods store and applies quick and easy to your clothing, boots, gear, etc.

While not technically a filtered water bottle, Sawyer Products’ water filtration system can transform anything into a safe, clean drinking vessel. Simply fill up the included reusable pouch at any water source, screw the pouch onto the filter, and either drink directly from the filter or squeeze the now-filtered water into another vessel (like a water bottle or pot for cooking).
