Engineer Saves Lives with Samaritan’s Purse in Disaster Zones

Samaritan’s Purse is a global organization that travels around the world to provide clean drinking water to as many people as possible. Brent Kejr, an engineer who loves building things and solving problems, made the decision to move back to the United States three years ago to work with Samaritan’s Purse.

Kejr plays an important role in designing 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.

Samaritan’s Purse is committed to providing safe drinking water during disasters and emergencies. Deputy Director David Phillips emphasized the importance of water as a life source, highlighting the need for preparedness at all times. In locations like Ukraine where the water infrastructure was damaged by war, Samaritan’s Purse was able to drill wells and distribute clean water throughout the community.

Overall, Kejr and his team at Samaritan’s Purse are dedicated to providing safe drinking water access regardless of the challenges faced by communities worldwide. Their work continues to impact countless lives in crisis situations around the globe.
