A donation of $100 covers the cost of the water filter, tubing, hardware, and two five-gallon plastic food-grade buckets. Additional dollars fund mission trips which put the filters directly into the hands of those who need them.
Safe Water by the Numbers
Nearly 1 billion people lack access to potable water. Here is how GiveSafeWater helps.
A Sawyer PointONE filter uses technology similar to advanced kidney dialysis filtration. The filter is small, portable, and does not require chemicals, a power source, or a trained operator for use or maintenance.
After one person learns how to use the filter, that person can provide clean water for 4 families, or approximately 20 people. Because of the simplicity of the filter's design, anyone can be taught to use the filter system.
The water filter can be cleaned easily by flushing clean water backwards through the filter. Because of the simplicity of the filter's maintenance, a filter will last 10 years and clean one million gallons of water.
