The first shipment of mini filters is taking a long journey from Chicago to New
Jersey and then Poland before reaching people in extreme need in Ukraine.
Aleksey’s team has made a short video for Ukrainian users about using and
maintaining the mini filters so that clean water can continue to flow. Another
shipment of mini filters will soon be sent to Ukraine. You can help Water With
Blessings support this urgent mission.
Each Sawyer mini filter, packaged with a 16-ounce pouch, includes instructions
in Ukrainian, and handwritten messages of encouragement and support. “Making
the impersonal, personal -- that’s our hallmark,” says Sister Larraine. “We know
the power of human hope is just as important as the power of these great filters.”
Along with packing the necessary supplies for our first shipment, volunteers have
been carefully copying translations of hopeful messages into Ukrainian using the
Cyrillic alphabet. One repeated message of hope is “Take courage -- God is with
you.” Please consider joining with us as we build more bridges of hope and
support to people experiencing extreme stress and loss.
