Pictured are five women living in Mexico and being trained to use a WAPI for safe drinking water.The Mexican non-profit Un Kilo De Ayuda (A Kilo of Help ministry) received 1000 WAPIs to distribute for safe water. One WAPI is given to each family for continual use. Currently over 300 WAPI's have been distributed to families.
First and foremost, the Un Kilo De Ayuda ministry program educate villagers in how to use the WAPI before they hand them out. Also, the women sign a contract stating they will utilize the WAPI every day to purify their drinking water in order for their families to protect people with weak systems from getting infections (also patients on cancer treatments and others who lack immunity). Children are most at risk. The WAPI program in Mexico is specifically aimed at families with children under 5 years of age.
Tom Carter, Board President of Agua Pura Para El Pueblo (Clean Water for the People), said he thinks this kind of training and working with the people, will make the program more successful and make "WAPIs for the World" grow as well. Many thanks to Tom Carter for sharing his pictures.
Note: The WAPIs were donated to Un Kilo de Ayuda by Agua Pura and Extra Mile Ministries parent company of WAPIs for the World.
