Samaritan's Purse Water Projects

Help Samaritan's Purse provide long-term, life-saving safe water through BioSand Water Filters

Hundreds of thousands of people die each year from diseases caused by unsafe water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene habits. Most are children in developing countries. Samaritan’s Purse works around the world to provide safe water and promote safe hygiene practices in homes, schools, and communities. As a result, families can be healthy, students can learn effectively, and villages can overcome one of their biggest challenges.

Christine and her family used to drink water from a well and suffered from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation. Now they use a BioSand Filter and it has transformed the lives of Christine and her family, including nine children. Watch her story:

The lives of more than 1.46 million people around the world have been transformed by access to safe water and improved hygiene and sanitation through Samaritan’s Purse Water Projects. Unfortunately, about 842,000 people are dying each year from diarrheal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation and hygiene. That means a death every 37.5 seconds.

Samaritan’s Purse is providing safe water to families around the world amidst a growing body of evidence that BioSand Water Filters save lives, restore health, enable parents to work more and their children to study more productively and generally improve the quality of life for filter owners.

Today, as an estimated 1.4 million children die every year from diseases caused by drinking polluted water, the evidence in support of BioSand Water Filters from reputable, independent researchers continues to grow.
