Fundraiser: The Gift of Clean Water

CLEAN WATER FOR A NORTH KOREAN FAMILY

Many North Koreans, especially those who live in rural areas, collect  their water from unprotected wells, springs, or rivers, and the water is  often contaminated. This leads to chronic diarrhea, malnutrition and  many serious health challenges. Diarrhea is the leading cause of death  in North Korea among young children.

For many years, CFK has been providing tuberculosis (TB) care centers  with Sawyer Point One water filter bucket sets. They have proven to  work very well in the local context, greatly impacting the health and  nutrition of patients recovering from tuberculosis. In 2020, we hope to  greatly expand this program in one of our supported provinces. Our goal  is to send a water filter bucket set home with every TB patient, and  every hepatitis patient being cared for in our HOPE for hepatitis  program. We know this will improve the health of these patients and  their families.

With minimal cleaning and maintenance, one water filter bucket set can  last for 10 years or more, providing clean, safe drinking water to all
the members of a household.

$25 will send the gift of clean water in the name of Christ to a North Korean family. We invite you to join in this effort!

Media Mentions from CFK

Christian Friends of Korea is dedicated to serving Jesus by ministering to nearly 25 million people through friendship and humanitarian efforts.

In 1995, CFK responded to large-scale flooding that impacted millions of lives precipitating a famine that set the stage for the TB epidemic and humanitarian needs that followed.

We responded by sending containers of brown rice from Louisiana and by confirming the arrival and delivery of emergency food aid. From that small beginning, our work has expanded significantly.

Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.

I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
