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!

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
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.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
