Thank you for your support of the Wine To Water Filter Program!
From July to December of 2018, Wine To Water implemented 901 Sawyer filters across the globe in eight countries. Whether as part of our major programs or in response to disaster relief, we ensure that our Filter Program is equipped to act efficiently and sustainably in various situations that are for the betterment of the people we serve.
Our filter partners greatly contribute to our ability to respond to disaster situations. Wine To Water is always in need of more filters and grateful for those who contribute by donating or hosting filter builds.
In the past six months, HOPEworldwide distributed 375 filters in four countries, including disaster relief response within the United States. Along with The Cajun Navy and SCORE: Toledo Medical Mission, HOPEworldwide responded to the hurricane in North Carolina, deploying a total of 520 filters for our neighbors on the east coast. In addition, Uganda-based organizations Omukali Villages Arise and The Humurara Rural Women’s Group implemented 110 filters, with another 250 already planned for 2019.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored Filter Build events from July to December of 2018.
