Many families are still buying bottled water throughout the island because the tap water is being over-treated with chemicals and the water cisterns have parasites.

They just keep giving so we’ll be sending more this fall! Thanks to Adam Garcia, Tiffany Theriot, and the folks at Water For Puerto Rico for assembling and distributing the purifiers to those who need them most! It’s been over 11 months since hurricane Maria and many families still need to buy bottled water for drinking and cooking. Most cities have running water now but they are adding so many chemicals that most will not drink it. Click here for the latest news feed.
We had a great trip to the island two weeks before Christmas. We trained church leaders, school directors, community center directors and business owners how to assemble and maintain their Berkey bucket and commercial water purifiers. We also visited nursing homes and gave out purifiers to several families throughout central and northern Puerto Rico.
We want to thank the folks at three amazing companies and one awesome restaurant for providing most of the funding needed to purchase these purifiers and fly me to the Island. A heart felt thanks from the people of Puerto Rico to SEACOR Island Lines, Trailer Bridge, ATS and Bacchanal Wine in New Orleans! Each of these businesses gave $3000 right after the hurricane to help us purchase the purifiers and fly to PR to set up a distribution network.
Bacchanal Wine continues to have amazing gourmet barbecue fundraisers for Purewater4kids. They have raised over $5000 for us in 2017! A BIG SHOUT OUT to everyone at Bacchanal Wine for your above and beyond hard work to help the families of Puerto Rico have safe drinking water! Thank you Miles Prescott, Joaquin Rodas, Chris Evangelista, Erin Ruane and all the amazing chefs, Chef Octavio Ycaza, Chef Fredo Nogueira, Chef Nathanial Zimet and Chef Bryony Hensel!
Ambassadors to the Nations in Managua, Las Maderas, Ometepe and Xiloa
We are providing water purifiers to several communities in Nicaragua through Ambassadors to the Nations. ATN has been helping the children of Nicaragua have a better quality of life since 1994.
They sponsor Christian schools in Managua, Las Maderas and Ometepe serving over 1200 children. They support 3 churches, a public school, several feeding programs, gift giving programs, and a prison ministry that brings hope to thousands each year.
We have provided high capacity purifiers to their schools, feeding programs and dozens of household purifiers to the families in those communities. With your help we can end the waterborne illness crisis in these communities.
How We Purify the Water
There are many ways to combat the waterborne illness epidemic in developing countries. The most popular way is by drilling wells near or within the communities they serve. This method solves the age old dilemma of needing to walk long distances to get water. Wells are the best choice when there’s no water source nearby. The families we serve in Nicaragua have water available within their communities so there’s no need to drill wells.
Where there is a local water source, filtration is a quick and effective way to remove the disease causing parasites. Popular filtration methods used by water missions organizations include slow-sand filters, compact hollow membrane filters, ceramic gravity drip filters, and ionic adsorption carbon block filters.
We first tested the compact hollow membrane filters and discovered that they do remove the disease causing parasites but do not remove viruses, bad tastes or any chemicals from the water!
We tested the Berkey ionic adsorption carbon block gravity feed drip design for over a year now. This design outperforms all the other filtering methods listed above to produce safe, good tasting water. This is the only filter available on the market today that removes viruses, parasites, bacteria, and the chemicals all in one unit.
We provide filter kits that are used in single and double 5-gallon bucket designs. Our double bucket design is used for schools, feeding stations and churches. Our single bucket design is sized to provide drinking and cooking water for one family for three years or up to 36 families during emergencies.
