Gift of clean water

Nearly 250 families along the Salinas River in Guatemala will receive water purification filters, thanks to the ELCA.

Flooding and mudslides contaminated underground springs and existing clean water sources of the Santa Elena, Santo Domingo, Roto Nuevo and Caribe Rio Salinas communities, said ELCA missionary Stephen Deal.

Most recipients are indigenous farmers who will now be able to purify 5 gallons of water a day for about a year.
