Brevard County, FL was spared the main effects of hurricane Dorian in early September, 2019. Local families, businesses, and individuals feel such compassion for those who have lost literally everything in the Bahamas. As it takes them months to years to fully rebuild, we seek ways to support their search, rescue, survive, and rebuild efforts.
We found and support the Air Mobile Rescuer water purification units, manufactured, delivered, and maintained by Joe Hurston and the Hurston family – founders and operators of Air Mobile Ministries.
The people of the Bahamas are in need of many things, the most crucial of which is clean, drinkable water. From hard to reach areas where search, rescue, cleanup, and rebuilding will be going on for months, to large areas of congregation where families are looking for lost members and teams of government workers will work alongside missionaries and others trying to set up base areas to function from, the Air Mobile Rescuer units can save and sustain lives.
Air Mobile Rescuer Water Purification Units are being deployed to the Bahamas for ongoing rescue efforts now. Each unit produces 25 gallons of pure, drinkable water each hour from available dirty water sources and weighs only 20 lbs. Each day, each unit provides clean, life saving water for up to 500 people in hard to reach areas!
Each unit costs $2,500 and 10 have already been flown in as of Saturday, Sept. 7th. Working with the Bahamian Air Traffic Control and the Bahmian Government (BEMA; their version of our FEMA), units are being placed with rescue and support teams on the ground but additional units are needed.
Air Mobile was founded in 1978 and has delivered water purification units to 40 countries dealing with natural disaster, famine, civil unrest and war over the years.
We are seeking financial support from families, individuals and businesses who are looking for a way to provide, real, life-changing support to the Bahamas that we know will affect thousands of those in need, in an ongoing capacity.
