Forward Edge: Christian Relief and Missions Organization

For $65, you can bring the #1 solution to the #1 problem facing poor families.

According to a survey of leading development practitioners published in the May 2012 issue of Christianity Today Magazine, the #1 solution for helping the poor in our world is providing safe drinking water.

On the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua, for example, 55 of every 1,000 children will die from preventable water-borne illnesses. That's because their hand-dug, shallow wells and nearby rivers get polluted by human and animal waste that flows freely through their communities. The path of this urgent health-care crisis looks like this:

The good news is there's a solution: Sawyer water filters. These amazing filters remove 99.9% of harmful bacteria and protozoa up to one million gallons! One million gallons would give a Nicaraguan family enough safe water to drink for the rest of their lives!

Forward Edge International is committed to bringing these filters to suffering Nicaraguans, as well as teaching them about sanitation, hygiene and keeping water safe.

How it works: These filters use hollow fiber membrane technology, much like a kidney dialysis machine, to remove contaminants through the steady flow of water. Learn more here.

The best part is that for just $65 you can provide one family a filter and the training to use it. For many of us, that's about as much as a water bill for one month. But in Nicaragua, $65 can bring a family safe water for the rest of their lives!

For every gift of $65, a Forward Edge health-care team will hand deliver a Sawyer water filter to a suffering Nicaraguan family and train them on how to use it.

Give $65 today, and give a family water for life!
