Thank you so much for your interest in my Belize Water Projects.
I have been working on these projects for at least 4 years now, and many good things have happened. For more information on these projects see my website: www.rotarybelizewater.com. We have so far sent 4,800 buckets, lids and Sawyer Point One water filters to Belize with the first 2,400 being furnished by Rotary GG 25486 and all of those were placed in all 297 schools and 9 orphanages in an effort to get all of the children healthy first. The second grant was GG25770 and that sent another 2,400 filter assembles for homes point of use filtration for drinking, cooking and bathing water. Each of the grants was about $100,000 in value.
Our Goal is to create History by Rotary and our partners helping Belize become the first country on this planet that can say that every person in their country has access to clean drinking water.
Recently, our good partner, The Word at Work (TWAW) agreed to start a Sawyer Filter Distribution Center in Belize. See: www.twaw.org TWAW sends 30 40-foot sea containers of materials to Belize each year. They build schools, orphanages, hospital extensions, etc. all over Belize. They do this with hundreds of faith based organizations, schools, Rotarians, and others that go down and help TWAW do their work in villages all over that country. They intend to offer those people the opportunity to sponsor a family in the village by giving them a Sawyer filter valued at $100 which would provide them clean water for the next 15 to 20 years. The beauty of this opportunity is that the filters are bought by missionaries and distributed by Missionaries I led a 17 person trip to Belize in February of this year and we distributed the last 400 filters to homes in 9 villages in Corozal District. We also followed up on villages that received filters in Orange Walk District some 6 months prior to our trip.
Now that TWAW has agreed to run the Distribution Center, I am continuing to work with them to raise more funds to buy the filters and get them started.
