Compassion International: Water of Life

Water of Life

Teaming Up with Compassion International

Positive Life Radio has teamed up with Compassion International during this year's Fall Fundraiser (Sept. 18-20) to supply safe drinking water to families in poverty around the world. Compassion International has developed a special water filter that is easy and effective, even in unimaginable conditions. We are excited to join Compassion in helping families all over the world receive the clean water they so desperately need.        

  • With every new dollar a day gift of $30 a month on Easy Pay, Compassion will distribute a “Water of Life” filter to a family, providing them with clean water for a lifetime.

  • If a previous pledge is upgraded to a $30 monthly pledge, a filter will be donated. For example, if $20/month is already being given, and $10/month is added, a filter will be given to a family.

  • If you are already giving $30 a month by check, converting to Easy Pay will also release a filter!

 

 

Water of Life Facts:

  • Almost 1 Billion people worldwide lack access to clean drinking water. 

  • Every year more than 3.4 million people die as a result of water related diseases, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world.

  • A child under 5 dies of a water-related disease every 15 seconds

  • Over half the hospital beds in the world are occupied by people suffering from a water borne illness.

  • Poor water sanitation and a lack of safe drinking water take a greater human toll than war, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction combined.

  • If all the world's water could fit in an average bucket, only 1 teaspoon would be drinkable.
