A few days ago, I filled my cup-ramen with hot water provided by the tea station in my campus cafeteria. As I was walking out, I was stopped by the cashier who told me to pay 50 cents for the water. It was the most pathetic thing I'd heard! I said, "I shouldn't have to pay for something you didn't make." Inside, I was screaming, “C’mon… This is Canada. Water is abundant and it should be equally provided for everyone!” For all my life, the privilege of having a safe supply of drinking water rarely crossed my mind and was rather taken for granted.

Until now, I had no idea today marked the World Water day. I surfed the net and was shaken to the fact that there were millions across the globe who were denied the most basic human right to access a safe source of drinking water.

Millions in South Asia would be shocked to see our digital taps running with preheated water... For them, they spend, on average, 2 hours to walk to and from a water source and extra 10 min. to boil it.

So, please help my goal of raising money for 100 families in India to own a BioSand water-filter. If you spare from adding another $30 spring sweater to your collection, you've already contributed your gift of one water filter.

On a micro-scale, this may seem to resolve the mere issue of supply and demand. But on a macro-scale, I believe that improving access to clean water could reduce maternal health issues, child mortality and overall poverty. So let's support this campaign for a life-changing, hope-renewing cause :)

Thank you :)

"The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water” (John 4:14). Let us contribute in giving them the water that makes a want into a well.

About BioSand
Water Filters

Disease-ridden water is a leading cause of sickness and death in Asia, especially among children. However, BioSand water filters can greatly address this problem.

  • BioSand Water filters are made from concrete and sand, meaning they're easy to construct.
  • They work on any kind of water—whether from wells, ponds, rivers or rain. This means families can use the closest water source and make it safe to drink.
  • BioSand Water filters are effective at removing dirt, worms, bacteria, and most viruses from water sources.

Your donation will support Gospel for Asia's BioSand Water filter distribution. For every $30 GFA can produce a single filter that will be given to a family in need. A single filter can often serve the needs of multiple families.
