Clean water

A Water Step Chlorine Kit was donated to the sisters by Frank Diebold, uncle of Lauren Sprigg who volunteered in Belize with the sisters for 7 weeks. Lauren was able to teach those at SCN Center Belize how to make their own chlorine and also how to use the kit to purify water. The purifier kit cost about $400. This piece of equipment will help the Sisters to continue improving the environment.
