CHARLESTON, Sc., Aug. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today, on the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Water Missions International (WMI) is preparing to respond to catastrophes around the world as the height of this year's natural disaster season approaches. WMI staff and volunteers have readied 20 water purification systems for immediate deployment to disaster-affected regions across the globe. In the aftermath of a disaster, the most urgent need is safe water. Each WMI water system has the capacity to purify up to 10,000 gallons of water per day, enough to provide clean, safe water for the drinking and cooking needs of 3,000 people.

Having responded to two major disasters earlier this year, the Cyclone in Myanmar and the earthquake in China, WMI's greatest need is funding. The organization welcomes donations to help replenish its disaster relief fund and assist future relief efforts.

About WMI: Water Missions International (WMI) is a nonprofit, Christian engineering organization based in Charleston, SC. WMI's mission is to provide sustainable access to safe water and an opportunity to hear the "Living Water" message in developing countries and disaster areas. Assistance is provided regardless of age, sex, race, or faith. To date, WMI has deployed a total of 591 water systems in 36 countries worldwide and two U.S. states, making safe water available to more than one million people.
