A future where globally, people with the fewest resources find immediate, affordable, and sustainable access to clean water through community empowerment programs.
WPD collaborate with other organizations and individuals to create an effective and affordable system that cleans water of virtually every known bacteria and virus, even water from either a pond, ditch or gutter for safe consumption. As Point-of-use treatment is one of the best approach, because it can speed up the health gains associated with the provision of safe drinking water to the at-risk populations, we support such communities with effective and affordable grassroot water filters which research have shown to be the most effective interventions amongst all point-of-use water treatment methods for reducing waterborne diseases. We adopt a hands-on focused approach to all facets of our program to empower communities to maintain or develop some parts of their water filtering system.
Unless disaster strikes in some impoverished communities around the world, very little is known to many about such suffering people, especially those in remote rural communities. I grew up in a rural poor community and know how this is true.
According to (WHO/ UNICEF/WaterAid), there are 884 million people worldwide who do not have access to safe water. That is roughly 1 in 8 of the world’s population.
Roughly 1.4 million children die each year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.That is 4,000 child deaths each day or one child every 20 seconds. It is also known that diarrhea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Drinking contaminated water also leads to reduce personal productive time, with widespread economic effects. In many rural and urban areas of the world, household water-quality interventions can reduce diarrhea morbidity by more than 40%.
We pride ourselves with our partners and supporters like you to seek and find solutions where others have failed in providing clean water to poor and under-resourced communities, supporting us will help address such social issues through our program.
