One time I was speaking with a recipient of a Pure Water filter and asked him what having a filter meant to him and his family. He said, "well, the children have stopped dying". Your support of the amazing work that Pure Water does saves children's lives. What could be more meaningful?

i am a water conditioning professional and a Rotarian. 7 years ago i visited project sites in Honduras vetting Pure Water for a Rotary project and experienced life changing programs. Pure Water was providing sustainable safe drinking water solutions for impoverished families, village by village. with technology made with indigenous materials, requiring no on-going expense and education that created a change in understanding, peoples lives were transformed. "the water is the medicine", "my children no longer get sick" were constant refrains heard from the beneficiaries. i was heart hooked. as much as it changed their lives, it also changed mine. i was invited to join the board and have never looked back. the work we do changes and saves lives and gives me self actualization.
