This Advent, you have the opportunity to join us in a new initiative to bring Living Water and the Light of Christ to poor communities in Kenya and Nepal.
Two innovative projects will meet the need for clean water and reliable light in poor communities. We are asking for your help in getting them into the hands of local communities served by the Anglican church.
Streams Water Purification System
The Streams Water Purification Tablet is a silver oxide product that filters out harmful bacteria. Placed in a 10 liter bucket of water, it purifies water in 24 hours, daily for up to a year. When the Streams tablet was tested in rural Nepal, villagers were at first skeptical. They had never experienced life without chronic diarrhea! A few brave households were willing to try it and before long, their neighbors came clamoring, “You have to share!” The results were that remarkable.
The XTorch is a durable, solar powered light source that serves as a lantern, flashlight, and cell phone charger. It has the “power” to allow students to do their homework after dark, away from dangerous cooking fires or kerosene lanterns. In Haiti, children in foster homes are also using the XTorch to get ready in the morning, since they often rise before dawn in order to get to school on time.
You now have the opportunity to purchase these products for the poor. Our partners in Kenya and Nepal are excited to distribute these products.
Read more about the initiative to learn how your donation both provides these products and empowers the local church to fund additional ministry!
