Living Waters for the World (LWW) is a global ministry of the Synod of Living Waters that provides sustainable clean water and fosters long-term, mutually beneficial relationships between volunteers and communities in need.
Trinity Presbyterian Church has worked with LWW since 2005, and has installed many water purification systems in El Salvador. There are now approximately 19 systems in El Salvador, most of which were installed by TPC alone or in partnership with other churches. We currently are working with Leland Presbyterian Church and Westminster Presbyterian Church in Hattiesburg to install purification systems in El Salvador.
Most recently, we installed a system in the village of Mediagua, which is near the city of Berlin in the central part of El Salvador. This village collects rainwater from roofs during the rainy season in a large tank. The system we installed purifies this water to make it safe for drinking.
Later in 2017, we hope to install a system in El Mozote in the northeast part of El Salvador. Most of the residents of the town were killed in a massacre during the civil war, but people have been returning to the village and lack a source of safe water.
