Welcome to the Water for Life International WordPress Blog.
We hope to hear from you and all of our world-wide constituents including engineers, medical teams, donors, supporters, volunteers and recipients of our water treatment systems and medical services!
This is also an opportunity to hear first hand about some of the current life saving activities out in the field and get to know some of our medical doctors, their medical teams, engineers, partners and supporters.
So let’s start blogging!
Water for Life has responded to many critical life threatening situations where the lack of clean, safe drinking water and medical assistance means the difference between life and death.
Tsunamis, Cyclones, Hurricanes, Earthquakes and other natural disasters destoy regions and communities world-wide. Water for Life International serves to respond immediately to help give life back and rebuild these regions. Water for Life saves lives and stops waterborne disease - helping people help themselves by implementing Living Water™ Treatment Systems.
When Water for Life discovered that many impoverished communities cannot afford the fuel or electricity costs needed to power their water systems, we worked with our partners to develop solar panel systems that provide low-cost and environmentally sustainable energy. The first solar-powered systems were installed last year in Sierra Leone, one of the most impoverished countries in the world and are operating successfully.
There are several different types of systems – reverse osmosis, solar panel, etc. – we will add a complete list soon.
A Living Water™ Treatment System ( LWTS™ ) produces clean water at a rate of approximately 10 gallons per minute (10,000 gallons per day) and is capable of meeting the daily drinking and cooking water needs for approximately 5,000 people.
If you would like to learn more about the Living Water™ Treatment System you can download a demonstration guide from the Water for Life International web site as well as contribute to the discussion in this part of the blog.
