Filter of Hope 2023 Costa Rica Trip

RW Supply+Design will be hosting a mission trip to Costa Rica to distribute water filters to people in need.

Learn more about this trip that is open to RW employees and guests, and apply by August 18th, 2023.

Trip Summary

We are partnering with an organization called Filter of Hope to host a mission trip that is open to RW employees and select guests to apply for. The RW Leadership Team will be selecting a group of approximately 24 people to go on this trip.

Filter of Hope (FOH) delivers water filters to people in need across Central America. Providing free access to clean water is a critical way to help families thrive. We will be fully trained and sent out in teams to install these water filters in the homes of people who do not have easy access to safe drinking water. Along with delivering water filters, FOH also shares how someone can become a follower of Jesus Christ. You do not have to share this message yourself, but you do need to be ok with someone else within our group talking about it with the people and families we meet.

You can watch this video to learn more about what Filter of Hope does.
