Brent Kejr and Samaritan’s Purse on a Mission to Bring Clean Water to Those in Need: A Journey to Prevent Disease Outbreaks during Crisis

Samaritan’s Purse commemorates World Water Day

Brent Kejr, an engineer with a passion for building and problem-solving, made the decision to move back to the United States from Asia three years ago to work with Samaritan’s Purse. This global organization travels around the world to provide clean drinking water to those in need, using a variety of technologies and filter systems to ensure access despite difficult circumstances.

As part of his role, Kejr helps design equipment used globally to provide clean drinking water. His work has taken him to places like Haiti after the earthquake, Ukraine, and various emergency field hospitals around the world. Samaritan’s Purse has mobile units that can be deployed wherever needed, capable of filtering water to make it clean and drinkable. These units can provide water for up to 10,000 people a day when connected to a fresh water source, with smaller filters available specifically for field hospitals to ensure patients have clean water for care and surgeries.

The organization’s mission is clear: prevent disease outbreaks by providing safe drinking water during disasters and emergencies. Deputy Director David Phillips emphasized the importance of water as a basic human right, highlighting the need for preparedness in times of crisis. In locations like Ukraine, where war damaged the water infrastructure, Samaritan’s Purse was able to drill wells and distribute clean water throughout the community.

Overall, Samaritan’s Purse is dedicated to ensuring access
