Springfield, MO (PRWEB) March 18, 2014

Convoy of Hope partners with Kind Kart and Filter of Hope in an effort to raise awareness and provide much needed water filters to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in the days leading up to World Water Day on March 22.

Following Superstorm Sandy in 2012, Kind Kart, a collaboration of three compassionate friends, utilized Amazon’s Wedding Registry site to enlist the help of people throughout the United States to procure more than $750,000 worth of relief supplies which were distributed to those in need. Providing resources such as gloves, food, clothing and generators, more than 35,000 donations were delivered in New York and New Jersey.

Convoy of Hope and Kind Kart are also partnering with Filter of Hope, a maker of efficient water filtration units. Each Filter of Hope water filtration unit provides up to 150 gallons of safe drinking water each day. With a campaign goal of 5,000 water filters, these filters will be distributed on the islands of Cebu and Panay in the Philippines.

Each filter purchased through the partnership will be distributed by Convoy of Hope to families in need in the Philippines. The campaign concludes March 23, 2014.
