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?
Fresh drinking water is essential. This water filtration system ensures you will never run out as long as there is a nearby natural water source. It can filter out bacteria, protozoa and microplastics.
Faster and more efficient than pumping or waiting for chemical treatments, the Sawyer Squeeze System offers on-the-go hydration at a good flow. This product is long-lasting, affordable, reliable, cleanable, and very user-friendly.
But Sawyer was way ahead of me — 15 years ahead, to be precise. In 2008, the brand started its Clean Water for All initiative, which provides Sawyer filters to developing countries around the world. And the company spends 90% of its profits funding it.
