Samaritan’s Purse commemorates World Water Day

Samaritan’s Purse Welcomes Engineer Brent Kejr to Design Equipment for Clean Drinking Water

Samaritan’s Purse, a global organization that specializes in providing clean drinking water to people in need, has welcomed Brent Kejr as their new engineer. Kejr, an engineer who enjoys building things and finding solutions to problems, returned to the United States three years ago to work for this renowned charity.

In his role as an engineer, Kejr will contribute to the design of equipment used worldwide to supply clean drinking water. The first deployment of this equipment was in Haiti after the devastating earthquake. Kejr has also spent time in Ukraine and set up water systems for emergency field hospitals in different parts of the world. Samaritan’s Purse has mobile units that can be transported anywhere and connected to water sources to filter and make it drinkable. With access to fresh water, one unit can provide clean water for up to 10,000 people daily. Additionally, they have small filters specifically for field hospitals to ensure that patients have clean water for care and surgeries.

According to Deputy Director David Phillips, the aim is to prevent disease outbreaks through the provision of safe water. Water is essential for life, and Samaritan’s Purse must be prepared to act swiftly in any situation. For example, in places like Ukraine where water infrastructure was disrupted by conflict, Samaritan’s Purse drilled wells to access and distribute water throughout the community. The primary objective of the organization is consistent: to supply safe water in response to any disaster because it is a fundamental necessity.
