San Mai Pattana, Thailand

 

We are ecstatic to announce our second funded water project.  The remote village named San Mai Pattana in Chiang Mai, Thailand was assessed in 2017 for water.  This village was established five years ago.  They only have nine homes! Residents are mostly farmers and all are buddhist. This provides us a great opportunity to share the love of Jesus!

 

The village does not have a school, clinic, or any other services.  Our project will provide:

  1. clean water (filter, tank, pipe and five faucets)
  2. four toilets
  3. training on sanitation
  4. family gardens for each home    

Project cost: $12,000


Funded April 1, 2018

 

Organizations we collaborated with: Lanna Coffee and 

International Tribal Development Program

  • clean water (filter, tank, piping and faucets)
  • bathrooms/toilets
  • education
  • family garden

We will be posting more details soon in our water projects section!

As always, thank you for your support! We are so excited about blessing others who so desperately need it!

Be Water Prepared for a Natural Disaster

 

Let’s chat about how to be ready to provide clean, safe water for yourself and your loved ones.  Typically, in a natural disaster, water sources become contaminated and are no longer safe for drinking.  You want to ensure that you do not drink this water which may contain viruses and bacteria. 

  1. Have at least 1 gallon of water, per person, for each day. Experts recommend that you have 3 days worth for each person in your household.
  2. You will need a way to clean water. There are a variety of products on the market.  I suggest simply having a small bottle of iodine tablets.  You can purchase these for under $10.  The tablets kill bacteria, viruses and giardia.  To clean water, you simply add one tablet, let it dissolve and wait 30 minutes before drinking.
  3. If you know that a natural disaster is on it's way (currently Hurricane Irma), fill as many empty containers as you can with clean water for the week to come! Think empty juice bottles, milk jugs, clean 5 gallon buckets (go get them out of the garage), water bottles. You may be surprised how many water holders you have around the house and they will come in handy!

We, at Quenching Well, are praying for all impacted by these hurricanes!

The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey leaves people without clean water

Hurricane Harvey has ravaged Texas.  39 inches of rain fell in a 5 day period, with wind speeds reaching 130 miles per hour.  In the wake of the devastation, communities are coming together to help one another.  It’s a beautiful example of human kindness and the bonding that occurs during a crisis.

I watched images of grocery stores with empty shelves where water should be.  I am awe struck by the fact that cities no longer have clean water to offer those that are trying to move forward.  The Quenching Well was started to give people hope, by providing for the most basic need, water.  And, yet, when a natural disaster, like Hurricane Harvey, occurs it completely changes what resources are available.  It's a tragic irony that there is water everywhere, but it is not safe for drinking.

Today’s journal entry is a request to support those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  I encourage you to donate through ARC, a wonderful church planting organization, who are on the ground working with local churches to provide directly to the families in need there.
