Solutions for safe drinking water

Dave PowellWe are so fortunate to live in this great country of ours. There are many blessings available to us every day and they can be so common that we never even think about them. One of these is having pure, safe water available by just turning on a spigot.
This is not true in many parts of the world, where clean, safe drinking water is just not available. Rotary International has been addressing this problem around the globe. Many countries around the world have clean drinking water because of this organization.
Today we have a major problem in Haiti. Children and adults are dying of disease borne by unsanitary water. It is estimated that 3.5 million people die every year. If your concern is the children of the world, 4,000 of them die every day from water-borne illnesses. Many of these are in Haiti.

The Faces Say It All!

The Faces Say It All!September 12th, 2011. Thanks to Water One, Inc., Rotary District 6960, Past District Governor Don Thomas, David Digman of Lemon Bay Sunrise Rotary and AGAPE Flights, WOWS was able to provide a Water One, solar powered, water purification wagon to a girls orphanage in Port Au Prince, Haiti. An existing water source that was questionable, now provides pure, safe, good tasting water for drinking and cooking 365 days a year. WOWS was featured on the Emerald Planet TV program, Sunday, August 7, 2011. Our thanks to Dr. Sam Hancock for inviting us on and for showcasing Water One mobile water purification equipment and what we are doing.
