Would You Drink 14,600 Gallons of Contaminated Water?

Did you know that, according to Compassion International, if you drink the "required" 64 ounces of water a day and live to the age of 80, you will drink 14,600 gallons of water! That is roughly the amount in your average pool, complete with a waterfall.

Now, consider the fact if every one of those gallons were brown with dirt, disease, and a whole bunch of disgusting, life-threatening things. That is the type of water millions of children drink every day.

Think about it:

Every day over 4,000 children are dying of water-related diseases such as cholera and typhoid that are easily preventable (UNICEF) 

Contaminated water kills 3.3 million people each year. Every 15 seconds, a child dies from water-related diseases.(UN)

There is a way to slowly fix this problem. Compassion International's Water of Life program is dedicated to providing clean water to children around the world. They can't do it alone, so that is where we come in. For $55 you can provide a clean water system to a family in need.

Water of Life Pump
Using the same type of system that was developed for kidney dialysis, Compassion filters the ugly contaminated water into clean water free of disease. One of these systems can be used to cleanse over 1 million gallons of water. If a single person drinks 14,600 gallons in their lifetime, then $55 will provide clean water for 68 people FOR THEIR LIFETIME! 

The systems takes 5 minutes to set up. That is all it takes to provide clean water. So, lets take back the harm Satan has done and influence people for the Kingdom, one clean glass of water at a time!
