This Mission project arose in concept following a Surgical Mission designed to correct the Cleft Facial deformities of a population located in and around a remote Christian School village located in South-Eastern India named Mori-Podu. After outfitting the local hospital with supplies and equipment and operating there, it was discovered that the population suffered from Dysentary and water-borne diseases due to contaminated water sources. The presentation shows the progression of the project from Cleft Faial surgeries to provision of a water purification system for the area working in impoverished conditions and overcoming several engineering obstacles. This project was the culmination of partnerships with Rotary Clubs of Carlsbad, Rotary International, Caped Inc., Water Missions Intl. and the Smiles International Foundation. http;//
