    I remember very vividly the genocide of Rwanda in 1994 and how I had wept to hear that many children assisted by Compassion also lost their lives.
    I still lament for them to this day.
    How absurd is man’s idea of cleansing blood with blood and attempt to conquer hatred with hatred and all this for nothing!

    “the peoples exhaust themselves for nothing, the nations’ labor is only fuel for the flames.” (Jeremiah 51:58, Habakkuk 2:13)

    As man is drunk with his own false sense of security and sovereignty because of power he presumes to possess at his disposal, and as he worships the works of his own hands which bear his own design and image, he will be humbled.
    Man must realize that only in the image of God, he can find his true self and identity and in His light alone he will see light.

    May the survivors of that atrocity ever find sanity, peace and hope for tomorrow in God alone who is at work through Compassion.

      Hi Wendy! Yes, you can definitely purchase a Sawyer water filter! Please visit http://www.sawyer.com to purchase a system from Sawyer, our manufacturer. Model SP180 is most similar to the system used by Compassion children and families. Have a blessed day.
