Water Teams Mission Trips

Contaminated water and poor sanitation: not only are they major causes of the developing world’s massive health problems, but they are killing someone—often a child—every 37.5 seconds. That means 842,000 deaths each year. You can help us answer their cries for help.

Samaritan’s Purse has built and installed almost 30 Samaritan Filters so far—with volunteer teams from Canada playing a key role—and has plans for building many more, with support from Canadian donors.

Samaritan’s Purse invites you to join us on a short-term team to help bring safe water to school children. Click here for more information and to sign up.

"I walk very far for water. My children are surviving under God’s mercy. Sometimes they have malaria and diarrhea. The water does not taste nice, but since we don’t have a choice we take it like that."
- Cecelia, mother of five children
