How the world we don’t see survives !  
As we enter the winter months with the Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, it gives me a chance to reflect with a thankful heart on our progress this year and how the WAPI project has moved forward.

We are about to enter our 10th year of WAPI production and have achieved over 70,000 units distributed to many remote areas of the world. We just delivered 100 units to Pastor Moses Muguro in Kenya, Africa, and he distributed the WAPIs to the Kibera area residents who happens to be the largest living slum area in Africa. This could not have been done without the assistance of so many people with love and compassion for others. It is truly amazing to be part of so many wonderful caring people.

life saving WAPIs." Pastor Moses
One WAPI serves a family
no matter how large the family.
This year we connected with Gary Munk, a machinist in California. His amazing ability to assess our needs and offering help to produce new heating techniques for our WAPI production is impressive, to say the least. The future looks great and the finished product will be outstanding. Gary and his wife Pam have opened their hearts to the WAPI project.

We had an opportunity to work with Jeff Lowery of the Sellwood Faith Community Church in Portland. Pastor Jeff leads groups of young people in summer projects around the Portland area. Their group name is (LAST), Learning And Serving Together. These are dedicated young folks who want nothing more than to assist others whenever they can. We have watched their efforts reach remote areas around the world and lives are being saved through their generous efforts of unselfish acts of love. See the group photos.

As you read this article, consider putting a group of volunteers together or make a contribution toward our efforts to serve others in need. Please remember, every 22 seconds a child dies from water borne disease across the world. The WAPI does make a difference and with your help we are making a difference, one life at a time. We are a registered as a 501(c)3 non-profit. Every dollar received goes right back in to supplies.

I have had the opportunity to be involved with so many wonderful people who give generously of their time and effort to help this project move forward. It humbles me to be part of such a marvelous Humanitarian family.
With Warmest Regards,
