CHARLESTON, S.C. — A South Carolina group working to get safe drinking water to people around the world is sending nine water purification systems to earthquake victims in China.
Water Missions International says three of its portable systems are in place and another six are being shipped to areas hit by an earthquake earlier this month.
The organization was founded in 2001 with a goal of bringing clean water to 100 million people worldwide.
The filtration units have 275-gallon tanks in steel cages that can be put on pickup trucks and taken to remote areas. They include generators that operate pumps to purify water from ponds or streams.
