Location: 2855 Calkins Pl Broomfield CO 80020 USA

Mission: In a world where a child dies every 15 seconds from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene, Thirst-Ed's goal is to make knowledge of household water treatment and proper hygiene as common as how to cook rice or fry an egg. Thirst-Ed promotes education and knowledge as the principal tools for safe-water intervention, inspiring the drive for improved water quality to come from within the community prior to the introduction of safe-water technologies.

We have known Curt & Cathy, the founders of Thirst Aid for about ten years, since their first trip to Thailand and encounter with the Karen refugees there. Since then we have visited with them almost every year.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

its first stages. That is in the development of its water purifying filters. Curt, Cathy and Liz and I have spent a number of hours in Mae Sot discussing the Karen refugees and the best ways to help them

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting two very big hearts with impressive engineering competence. In some ways they represent typical American "can do" competence, except they listen better than many Americans.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

go a long way toward solving the world's need for clean potable drinking water.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
