Clean Water through BioSand Water Filters

For many in Asia, their only source of water is full of diseases, and a BioSand water filter is the perfect solution. Stripping the water of its impurities, these filters can save families from waterborne illnesses and allow children to grow healthy and strong.

BioSand water filters are perfect solutions for families or a small community.

A gift of $32 can provide a whole family or a small community with clean water!

BioSand water filters make water 98% pure and can last up to 20 years if properly cared for.

And with clean water available to people for years to come, families will be able to live much healthier lives.

Video Highlight: Nirmala's Story

Nirmala and her family only had pond water to drink and experienced constant pain and sickness because of it. See how a BioSand water filter helped change their family!

Millions die each year from water-related diseases

Imagine drinking a large glass of ice water on a 95 degree day. In first-world countries, it's easy to satisfy your thirst with a cool beverage. But worldwide, 1 in 9 people don't have access to clean water.

Their 'refreshing' drink looks more like what you'd find in a dirty fishbowl. Children and adults collect drinking water at contaminated wells and stagnant ponds, contracting deadly waterborne diseases. But lack of access to water is due to more than just poverty.

Dalits and Christians are often barred from community water sources by unfriendly neighbours and must drink water from distant or foul sources.

A gift of $32 will provide water that is 98 percent pure.

"The only access the village had was to dirty, contaminated water." —Bruce, a behind-the-scenes missionary at GFA World

Sadly, this statement is painfully true in thousands of villages in South Asia. Pure water is dangerously scarce, and the problem continues to drastically increase.

A BioSand Water Filter can provide a family and sometimes an entire village with clean water for decades!
