The Slums of Nairobi,Kenya Need Our Help!

         Thousands of People Living in the Slums of Nairobi,Kenya Need Our Help        

I just got back end of July from 3 weeks in Kenya and even though it feels good to be back home with all that we are spoiled with ( we are so Blessed here to have what we have )  I deeply miss the children and beautiful people in Kenya and want to go back next year and I would love for you to go with me.                                                                                                            

We spent most of our last day distributing water filters and food to the families in one of 4 slums in Nairobi and it was heart breaking (see photo below.) Even though we saw a lot of poverty everywhere we went in Kenya where peoDSC_1103ple are living on less than $2/day; while other people living in Kenya at least have beautiful green surroundings and are able to grow their own food. The homes in the slums are truly devastating.

In the slums nothing is green, everything is dirty and brown, sewage and smells everywhere and families of 6 or more are just just surviving day by day in a room that is no more than 24ft sq…I’m serious, the size of most smaller dining rooms here… You wonder how they do it right? But they do somehow!!

On the plane back, God put on my heart to focus getting safe water and soap for good hygiene to all the precious little children and family members-starting with this slum. The good news is, we spent the day with a wonderful new friend Lilian, who lives in this slum with her 3 children and I spoke to her to be our main contact to make this happen!! A giant smile came over her face, she is so very thankful and excited to work with us to help the people in her slum….the need is so great!!

This young girl’s face is full of terror…can you imagine! Heavy monsoon rains that began in late June – compounded by Cyclone Komen – have triggered some of Myanmar’s worst flash floods and landslides ever.

I wish I was there to love on these precious children. With flooding most all of the water sources are contaminated and the crops are destroyed which means a shortage of food and safe clean drinking water. They will need help for months to come!

Our partner, Empow er International ( www.empowerleaders.org ) have people on the ground in Myanmar ready to distribute our lifesaving water filters to children/families in need of safe clean drinking water.

NEPAL NEEDS OUR HELP!
On April 25 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck near Nepal’s densely populated capital, Kathmandu. The quake has caused widespread devastation and loss of life, affecting communities in Nepal, India, and Bangladesh. It is the worst disaster to hit Nepal since 1934.
Thousands have come together to aide in Nepal’s earthquake recovery.
PLEASE JOIN US NOW TO DO OUR PART!

They must rebuild their lives from the rubble. 
 
IT IS CRITICAL THAT EACH OF US do our part to ensure that every woman, man and child will have safe clean drinking water. 
OUR MIRACLE!

Our filter partner Sawyer/Birang is located in Nepal and
HAS AGREED TO DISTRIBUTE THE FILTERS WE PURCHASE IMMEDIATELY to the hurting children and families within days of you making your donation. They have quoted us a special price of $40 per filter.
Each filter will provide over 1 million gallons of clean drinking water.
Our partner is Birang in Nepal.  Click here to see their website.

 
OVER 4.2 MILLION PEOPLE ARE WITHOUT SAFE CLEAN DRINKING WATER.
 
IMAGINE THE IMPACT YOUR DONATION FOR AT LEAST FIVE (5) FILTERS WOULD MAKE IN THE LIVES OF FAMILIES IN NEPAL.

Many of these precious children live in remote areas with no food, no water and no government support. Thousands of people have been displaced and are living in makeshift refugee camps.

“The health and well-being of children are hanging in the balance … With the monsoon season only a few weeks away, children will be at heightened risk of diseases like  cholera and diarrhoeal infections …” (UNICEF)
PROVIDE IMMEDIATE SAFE DRINKING WATER TO FAMILIES IN NEPAL!

Amazon 2014

The Amazon River, Peru ( Dec 2014 )….1 minute video bringing safe, clean water to the precious children/family members living on the banks of the Amazon.

My trip to the Amazon River was amazing on many levels. We played with hundreds of beautiful, smiling children like you see in this short video and they just melt and break your heart, running around bare footed and their clothes so dirty and their hair and bodies so dirty…you just want to love on each one and not let go!!
I loved sampling the water to show the people how safe the water is coming out of the filters we provided them, they were pretty shocked that this white guy would drank their water!! Hundreds of children/family members are now drinking safe water for the 1st time in their lives.

I can’t even put it into words how peaceful and friendly these people are and how even thou they wake up each day without the basics of life that we are all so spoiled with..they seem to be happy.
Please decide to help bring safe, clean drinking water to the mothers in the world, who have no choice but to feed their babies and small children contaminated water each day, causing sickness and death.
They really need our help..thank you!! Blessings Rudy

Floating Village..Cambodia

Thank you for visiting my Blog page. I would love to hear from you..my email is rudysayshello@aol.com

Floating Village: I’m in Cambodia and Vietnam…bringing safe, clean water to children/families ( Jan 5th, 2014 )

I think I have shad more tears on this trip then then maybe my entire life all together. We were at the floating villages yesterday, climbing up onto homes where over 5K people live 12 ft above the water for when it floods and also 2 schools that both hold over 200 children each, giving them water filters. It felt so so good to do this of course, but here and the villages on the ground, you see hundreds and hundreds of these beautiful, smiling children and they just melt and break your heart, running around bare footed and their clothes so dirty and their hair and bodies so dirty…but they are just so so precious, you just want to take each one back with you and just love on them. I have to figure out how to come back here soon with hundreds to thousands of filters some how!! They drink the water right out of the river and it’s brown in color and guess where they all go to the bathroom living on the water….yep, you guessed it. I loved sampling the water after it was filtered to show the people how safe the water is….they were pretty blown away that I drank their water!! You will see me in one of the photos below doing this and two photos are attached for you to see.


The people here are so peaceful and friendly, I can’t even put it into words and the beautiful country and temples…it’s simply amazing. I realize now that I need our Ministry to focus more on saving children here. I would love to live here, I really would and spend the rest of my life saving one child at at time here.
Please decide to help bring safe, clean drinking water to these beautiful people..they need our help..thank you!!God Bless you….Rudy

Message from Mark

Hello everyone, thank you again for visiting our website and my Blog. This time I just want to share with you our partner Mark’s email below and the video we put together recently from footage Mark sent us. We have now sent Mark approx 200 filters….thank you each so much for helping us save the precious, forgotten children in the world….Rudy.
Dear Rudy and Partners,
I want to thank you for your latest donation of sixty water filters for us here at Why Not Now Ministries! We are so grateful for the tremendous blessing you are to us and the precious children and families we reach here in Sputh East Asia. As you may know, the two largest causes of death in the world are mosquito bites and diseased drinking water. We know there is a solution and it really is amazing to be able to provide that solution through these water filters.
Our organization is committed to rescuing children from trafficking and ones that have been orphaned. In doing so we are in some of the poorest communities throughout Cambodia and Việt Nam. Many times parents are forced to sell their children due to illness of a family member and the stress it puts on their already desperate situation. These filters are vital to keeping children healthy so the family unit stays intact and functioning.
The filters we just received, will not only be distributed in Cambodia and Việt Nam, but some will also be distributed in Thailand. I will reserve giving out too many details of locations at this point due to the sensitivity of the situation here. I am writing to you now from Việt Nam and I must be selective when it comes to information. Know this, that these filters are reaching people in extreme situations. Some will go to the homes of rescued children and others into villages as a preventative tool. We will take some pictures and videos and will be able to expound after the distribution. I wish I could tell you more now but trust you understand. Distributions will take place within the next thirty days.
If you believe in prayer and its power, please pray for safe travels and delivery. Thank you!
Again, I am so thankful to your Ministry Rudy, and brag about your organization to everyone I know. You fill such a vital role, a link in the chain, if you will, that is so needed if we are truly going to reach the people in the most desperate situations. There are so many others like myself that have the privilege of going to some of the darkest regions, but to have to also spend time and resources procuring the filters would be difficult to say the least. Having an organization like yours that selflessly and generously provides these filters is literally a LIFE SAVER. It gives me chills just writing that.
Thank you in advance for your continued partnership. It is our dream and vision to see the entire world have the opportunity to drink clean safe drinking water. Together we are seeing villages and communities live in that dream!
Much Love,
Mark Neitz

Guatemala

Thank you so much for visiting our website and my Blog page.
Children are suffering and facing certain death in the mountains of Guatemala from malnutrition, because they only have contaminated water to drink.
In this short video below, you will see the first filters that we supplied our partner World Help, bringing safe, clean drinking water to over 1,500 children and family members in the mountains, saving countless children from certain death. You will also see water gushing from a new well dug in the town below the mountains….God is Great!!

Early March, Dep Tuany will be taking over 100 Sawyer water filters to South Sudan bringing safe, clean drinking water to over 5,000 children/family members. Dep and his family trekked over 1,500 miles to Ethiopia, escaping the Genocide that was happening in South Sudan. His 2 year old son died from drinking contaminated water while on this trek ( Please keep checking back to see this video ).

Also in March, we will be sending our fourth lot of Sawyer filters ( 75 to 100 ) to our partner http://www.whynotnowministries.org in Vietnam. Mark and his wife sold their home in CA and are now living there, saving children from a life of sex trafficking in Vietnam and Cambodia…contaminated water causes children to be sold into this horrific life!!

Please help us send hundreds more water filters to these partners and our other partners ( see Our Partner page ) by going to our donate page and Blessing our Ministry with a donation….Thank you!!

Welcome again everyone, thank you for visiting our website.

We just completed our 1st big fundraiser at a beautiful home on the water in San Diego and it was a giant success!! Please go to our Facebook page to see photos of this exciting evening.
 
The donations given by the loving folks who came to our event made the following possible!!
 
>>> 30 Sawyer water filters are right now in the mountains of Guatemala taken in by a team from our partner World Help. These filters will save countless babies from death and suffering and help families stay healthy!
>>> 60 filters are on a plane right now with a team heading to Cambodia to give to our partner WhyNotNowMinistries, who save children from sex trafficking. These 60 filters will bring safe, clean drinking water to over 3,000 children/family members for the 1st time in their lives and help save children from being sold into this horrific evil life.
>>>Dep Tuany who spoke at our event, sharing how he lost his 2 year old son to contaminated water, will be taking 75 filters to South Sudan..bringing safe, clean drinking water to 4,000 children/family members in several villages.
>>> Many more filters will be heading out with our partners mission teams to Africa, India and Haiti over the up coming holidays.
