Project Summary Project Information

One of the core components for providing successful care and improving the standard of living in impoverished nations is access to clean water. According to Inhabit.com there are over 3.5 million people dying each year from water-related diseases. About half of the worlds hospital beds are taken by those who are suffering from waterborne diseases, lack of water, poor hygiene and sanitation. By simply increasing the accessibility to clean drinking water, death, disease and suffering could be cured for millions around the world.

Our mission is to develop a device that is robust enough to produce clean drinking water anywhere around the globe that has a natural water supply. The aim is to remove or kill all waterborne pathogens that pose a threat to the user. It must be reliable, easy to install / use, and portable. This device is intended to be given to those suffering in impoverished nations or those who live in an area struck by a natural disaster.
