Would You Drink Yellow Water?

Mirla’s family in Peru routinely drinks water from a polluted river near their home. It’s yellow and they try to strain out the bugs and debris. Now, an amazing invention makes the water clear and safe to drink! Read Transcript


Reporter: WHEN A

POLLUTED RIVER NEAR YOUR

HOME IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF

WATER FOR DRINKING, BATHING,

AND COOKING, YOU USE IT.

SOMETIMES I FOUND DIRTY

DIAPERS AND WORMS AND OTHER

NASTY THINGS IN IT.

Reporter: FOR MIRLA AND

HER FAMILY, THE WATER FROM

THE RIVER WASN'T JUST DIRTY,

IT WAS DANGEROUS.

MY SON SAID, MOMMY, MY

STOMACH HURTS.

HE TOLD ME HE WANTED TO

DIE.

I FELT SO GUILTY FOR GIVING

HIM THIS WATER.

Reporter: MIRLA HAD

LEARNED ABOUT WATER-BORNE

BACTERIA AT AN "OPERATION

BLESSING" PROGRAM AT HER

CHILDREN'S SCHOOL.

BUT WITH NO CLEAN WATER

SOURCE NEARBY, THE FAMILY

HAD NO OTHER OPTIONS.

I HAD NO MONEY TO BY

WATER.

SO WE HAD TO USE THE WATER

FROM THE RIVER, WHICH I KEPT

GIVING TO MY KIDS BECAUSE

THEY WERE THIRSTY.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" PROVIDED THE

FAMILY WITH THIS KNEW,

INEXPENSIVE FAMILY FILTER.

MIRLA SIMPLY POURS THE DIRTY

WATER IN AND THE FILTER

CLEANS ALL OF THE BACTERIA

AND DEBRIS.

THE FILTER WILL LAST THREE

YEARS BEFORE IT NEEDS TO BE

REPLACED.

I LOVE THE FILTER YOU

HAVE GIVEN US.

NOW MY CHILDREN DON'T GET

SICK ALL OF THE TIME.

AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO DRINK

THIS YELLOW WATER ANYMORE.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" ALSO

TAUGHT THE KIDS AT SCHOOL

ABOUT BASIC HYGIENE, LIKE

WASHING THEIR HANDS.

AND WE ALSO GAVE EACH CHILD

AND FAMILY MEMBER A PILL,

WHICH WILL KILL PARASITES

FOR SIX MONTHS.

I AM REALLY GRATEFUL FOR

WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR MY

FAMILY AND ME.

THANK YOU, "OPERATION

BLESSING."
