The first unit will be shipped via Agape Flights (www.agapeflights.com) to Haiti in May 2011. Rotary Clubs in District 6960 will assist in providing funding for at least six more units in 2011. The program with Rotary has recently been expanded to Florida Rotary District 6980 that will also assist in providing funding for mobile water purification units in 2011 and beyond. The current program with Rotary Districts 6960 and 6980 provide a template for other Rotary Clubs and Districts to use to establish safe drinking water projects in other emerging countries.
