New Water Filters to Combat Guinea Worm, Help Spread Gospel

Source: Mission Network News

Christian workers with International Aid (IA) eagerly await the arrival of a shipment of special water filtering systems to combat the parasitic guinea worm in the West African nation of Ghana. The worms, spread through contaminated water, cause a crippling disease that affects about 25,000 people in nine African countries, especially Sudan and Ghana. The adult spaghetti-like worms, which can reach a length of three feet, cause large ulcers. IA’s new BioSand water systems use organic microorganisms to consume bacteria and harmful pathogens directly from the water source, eliminating the spread of the parasite. The first shipment of filters is en route. “It’s on the high seas right now [and] we expect it to be in Ghana in the next two or three weeks,” said IA’s Jim Bodenner. “We are working with the IA infrastructure on the ground in Ghana to develop an implementation plan to get the first 2,250 filters in use in high guinea worm-endemic areas.” That translates to an open door for the gospel, says Bodenner. “[We believe the] BioSand water filter . . . strongly advances our ministry to support faith-based organizations on the ground that we’re involved in.”

HydrAid training allows for clean water

International (MNN) -- And, unsafe drinking water kills more people than AIDS and cancer, combined. International Aid's answer is the HydrAid BioSand water Filter. The filters are sponsored by Christians who often also want the hands-on experience of installation. International Aid's Kurt Reppart says, "What we've developed is a training center here on our site where we actually walk people through the actual installation of a filter so that they can use that as an avenue for their either short term missions trips or long term missionaries." After training, the link between spiritual and physical transformation becomes clear. It's a matter of demonstrating the love of Christ in a tangible, meaningful way. "When people actually put their hands on the filter and see how easy it is, and how simple it is to set up, they become really excited about the potential to get this into the hands of the people who need it most." Once they know how, the groups are able to show others how to install the filters, or do it themselves. Go to our Web site for details.

Clean water fundraising tool matches cause and thirst

International (MNN) -- International Aid is launching the "Clear Cause Campaign." The project pairs fundraising with a safe water cause and ministry potential. Take, for example, a church in Indiana that has been working in India for eight years. Kurt Reppart with International Aid says they've identified clean water as an important issue. "They want to provide 150 filters in two communities. They're going to take this water, and they're going to sell 150 cases. And by doing that, they'll support the filters that they want to install in that village." Each case represents one BioSand water filter. Once they've sold the water, the profits shared with the Hydraid project will help the team go on the mission trip to India. "They'll come to our site here, and their team will be trained by our experts so that they can install them properly. Then they'll meet the container in India and use it as a tool for reaching out to the community and for reaching out in evangelism." Go to our Web site for more details if you want to get involved.

International Aid's Myles Fish says they've been offering concrete water filters to address that problem. However, they've just launched the production of a plastic water filter which is lighter and more economical. "Our first step is going to be to deliver filters to three different countries so that we can demonstrate that not only does the plastic work, but that we'll have to be able to demonstrate that we're able to train people how to use them appropriately so that they actually do receive the health benefit from the clean water."
