Our Mission and Partnerships

The mission of I Thirst International is to bring the blessing of clean water to the suffering primarily through water filtration, pump repair, and well drilling. We will partner with missionaries, Christian organizations, and the local church as they reach out to their communities with the love of Jesus Christ in word and in deed.

Sawyer Water Filters

To provide clean water to families in need, we have found an excellent solution - Sawyer water filters. These filters are portable, inexpensive, long-lasting, and remove all harmful bacteria. Using dialysis technology, their proprietary filter was designed to remove harmful bacteria and contaminants. The filter uses gravity and can be attached to any bucket or bag. The extremely fast flow rate and compact size allows individuals to filter water in their own homes as they need it, eliminating the need for a large water storage system as well. The filter is easily cleaned with a backwash syringe. LEARN MORE >>
