Clean Water Buckets in the Dominican Republic

This project seeks to raise $5,500 in the next year to purchase 100 buckets with special clay filters and a five-gallon container for each family to hold the filtered water.

Goal: $5,500

About this Mission Project

Many Dominican and Haitian family men work 12 hours a day in the sugar cane fields to support their families. Every day, the women and children walk to the nearest river or water source to collect water for cooking, bathing and drinking. The water is contaminated with bacteria and parasites, but it’s their only source of water.

Project “Clean Water” will provide 100 families with a specially filtered bucket. Water that is poured through the filtration system will then be safe and clean. These five-gallon buckets help families like Marina and Profeta (pictured above) to be healthier and have a better life. Being healthier means not missing work or school.

A gift of $55 will provide one filter and bucket to a family in the “bateys” of the Dominican Republic.
