ADRA and Water Mission Partner to Deliver Safe Water to Pombewe, Indonesia

Communities in the hardest hit regions are being served through this collaboration

N. Charleston, South Carolina  – November 1, 2018  Water Mission, a nonprofit Christian engineering organization based in North Charleston, has collaborated with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) to fund and install four Living Water Treatment Systems – Water Mission’s patented filtration solution – that will serve up to 20,000 people per day. After site investigations and assessments, the community of Pombewe is the first to have a Living Water Treatment System installed.

“ADRA is pleased to work with Water Mission. The level of expertise Water Mission brought in emergency and technical capacity managing and maintaining water activities made it possible for the Pombewe community to receive safe drinking water,” says Jason Brooks, senior technical advisor for Water and Sanitation at ADRA. “ADRA continues to work closely with Water Mission, and together devote time and effort to helping those impacted by disasters internationally with compassion and technical excellence.” 

Water Mission is grateful for the partnership with ADRA which demonstrates our combined commitment to empowering those in need with safe water,” said Mark Baker, Director of Disaster Response for Water Mission. While communities mourn the loss of loved ones and begin the painful process of rebuilding, access to safe water is absolutely critical and we are excited to be working with ADRA to meet these needs during this difficult time.

Water Mission is prepared to send additional equipment to Indonesia as needed and as resources are available. Donations to the organization’s Indonesia disaster response can be made at Supporters can also create their own fundraising campaigns to help the people of Indonesia. One hundred percent of donations will be restricted to the Indonesia disaster response.
