Think of all the ways you use water every day…. Drinking…. Cooking…. Washing…. What if you had no clean water?. Thousands upon thousands of people have no clean water. Our goal is to raise money to specifically help those in the refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya that border Somalia.
Today one person dies every 15 seconds in Africa due to a lack of clean water.
Somalia has had 17 governments in the past 20 years. Refugees are fleeing to Ethiopia and Kenya.
Camps have been set up near the borders, but clean water is a major concern.
In some places water is hard to find, a major concern.
in others it requires a long journey. In most places, it is full of dirt, bacteria, and impurities.
In some areas of Kenya, sand dams have been constructed to collect rainwater…
In other areas there are wells, but no capacity to store or filter the water.
Dysentery and other waterborne disease results in many illnesses and countless deaths.
is providing thousands of LifeStraw personal filtration straws to filter and purify water.
A LifeStraw has no moving parts and no need for a power souce. It is lightweight and portable. A LifeStraw filters out 99.9999% of all waterborne bacteria.
The souce. It is lightweight and portable. LifeStraw has four separate filters to clean and purify the water, including an activated carbon filter to improve the smell and taste of the water
Water before and after souce. It is lightweight and portable. LifeStraw filtration.
The difference is clear.
