Engineer Brent Kejr: Providing Clean Drinking Water During Crisis with Samaritan’s Purse

Samaritan’s Purse commemorates World Water Day

Samaritan’s Purse, a humanitarian organization dedicated to providing clean drinking water to communities in need, has been making a difference in the lives of millions of people for years. Brent Kejr, an engineer with a passion for building and solving problems, joined the team three years ago and has since become an integral part of their efforts to bring safe water to those who need it most.

As part of his role at Samaritan’s Purse, Kejr works closely with the organization’s engineers and technicians to design and develop equipment that can be used globally to provide clean drinking water. From Haiti after the earthquake to Ukraine and various emergency field hospitals around the world, Kejr has seen firsthand the importance of access to clean water during times of crisis.

One of the key aspects of Samaritan’s Purse’s work is their ability to quickly deploy mobile units that can filter water and make it safe for consumption. These units are capable of providing clean drinking water for up to 10,000 people a day when connected to a freshwater source, with smaller filters available specifically for use in field hospitals.

Deputy Director David Phillips emphasizes the importance of water as a life-giving resource, highlighting the need for organizations like Samaritan’s Purse to be prepared at all times. In locations where infrastructure has been damaged by war or disaster, such as Ukraine, Samaritan’s Purse has been able to drill wells and distribute clean water throughout communities.

Overall, Samaritan’s Purse is committed to ensuring that access to safe drinking water remains a top priority during times of crisis. With engineers like Brent Kejr leading the way, the organization continues to make a real difference in the lives of millions of people around the world.
