Giving to Meet the Mission
PUR Service Teams and Projects
Waterlife Mission TripUganda
This campaign has been set up as a fundraiser for the travel expenses of the volunteers that will be going on the Waterlife Mission Trip to Uganda August 5-14, 2019. We invite anyone and everyone to help raise the funds these volunteers need in order to go on this trip. The total trip cost per person is $2,780. That covers all expenses while in Uganda except those expenses that come from any tourist type activities. It also covers cost of airfare, and travel medical insurance. This is a big financial sacrifice for anyone. Please consider helping to make this trip possible for each of these volunteers so that they can have the chance to not only give of their finances, but give their time and effort towards this life changing opportunity. Service is a big part of the vision of PUR International. We believe strongly in the power and the impact it can have on both the giver and the receiver. We are so excited to be partnering with members of Waterlife Church to conduct this service trip. When you donate to this campaign, you can leave a comment to communicate a specific team member you want the money to be given towards. If you do not specify a team member, the money will be distributed equally to reduce the total trip cost for all. Thank you for your support!

Church Building in KitoolaKitoola, Uganda
In August of 2019 we will be partnering with volunteers from Waterlife Church in Lenoir, NC to build a church in the village of Kitoola, Uganda. The first project that PUR International ever did in Uganda was to build a pit latrine for this same village community on the land that has been selected as the site of the future church building. The picture above is of the lot where the church will be built. The congregation has been meeting for over 4 years in a local school classroom. They pay rent to use the building, and there are many restrictions pertaining to their use of the building. They have had the dream of being able to meet in their own building since the church began. Now, PUR International and Waterlife Church will be working together to make their dream a reality. The cost of the building is $6,000. Please help us reach this goal, and bless this congregation with their own building that will be used on a daily basis for many years to come. Thank you!!

Medical Supplies and Equipment Medical CampUganda
Last year in April we conducted a 3 Day Medical Camp in Uganda with a team of volunteers from the US, and with local Ugandan volunteers. In those 3 days we treated over 1,000 people. This year we have another team coming, and we plan to do an even bigger camp. We will base the camp in a remote village for 2 days, and then near a local clinic for the other 2 days. We hope to treat at least 2,000 people this year. In order to do this camp we will need your help to purchase all of the medicines and supplies we will be distributing. We will also be renting a tent for people to sit under while they are waiting. April is rainy season, so rain is likely. Please consider giving towards this campaign today.

Ugandan Medical Trip for April 14-25, 2019Uganda
This April we have a team of Volunteers traveling to Uganda to conduct a 4 Day Medical Camp where we will offer free treatment to people there who need it. We will be holding the camp in a remote village for the first two days, and then near a local Ugandan clinic the other 2 days. We will be working along side many local volunteers and medical staff as well. We have a family of 5 coming from Norway to volunteer for this project. This team is being led by PUR International's own Heidi Kanagy. If there is anyone else that would still like to be added to this team, and take part in this project, the trip is still open. This campaign is meant to help raise funds for the travel expenses of all team members. Please consider supporting this trip, and helping the team to raise funds to cover some of their expenses.
