Later this month, Shana Nunez, Tara Odell, Scarlett James, and Angelica Gonzalez, in partnership with For One Another and Hope Abides, will travel to India to distribute water filters and check on our ongoing projects. We’re so excited to provide this update, written by Shana, on their fundraising efforts over the past few months, and will be posting more […]

Kenya

For One Another has partnered with Diakonia Compassionate Ministry (DCM) to distribute water filters in Western Kenya and Nairobi since 2013. It is estimated that 30 million Kenyans do not have access to clean and safe drinking water.

On our first trip in 2013, we were able to provide water filters to several families, an orphanage of 45 boys and a school serving 120 children, where 30 orphaned children stay full time. It was a beautiful time and a wonderful experience.

Recognizing that so many more families and children needed clean water, in 2014 we supported another round of water filter distribution in Nairobi and in communities outside of Kisumu, including thirty-five filters to a group of people living with HIV. HIV+ people, with their compromised immune systems, understand the risks of disease from drinking dirty water. Cholera, typhoid, giardia, and parasites will sicken even the strongest person. For HIV+ folks, such diseases can be deadly.

When the river water was poured into the bucket and ran through the filter, the men and women were so overjoyed to see the dirty river water, brown in color, change to clear water right in front of them. In most groups, people will try a sip of the water and pass it around to others. Not in this group. Each person drank a whole glass as if they had been in the desert for days. “It’s so sweet!” one person said. Another one said, “I can’t wait until I have to take my ARVs (meds for HIV) tonight so I can drink a big glass of water.” Smiles, hugs, and songs of gratitude ended our time together. – Pamela Boehle-Silva, partner with FOA

Starting in 2014, For One Another and DCM worked to track the effects that using water filters had on communities’ overall health and well-being, supporting local Kenyans who visited communities to educate and follow up with the households who received and were using water filters.

In 2016, we brought our total number of filters distributed in Kenya to 300 – potentially serving nearly 3,000 people, since many of the filters support both a single household and their neighbors. You can read more about this trip here.
