The Project Waves for Water was founded by the professional surfer Jon Rose to help victims of natural disasters by providing water filters. Jon Rose also designed the filters. The equipment consists of buckets, a carbon filter with microfiber and a few hoses. Everything is easily assembled to transform contaminated water into water ready to be consumed without posing a risk to victims.
The project goal is to quickly identify areas affected by disasters and to find a way to reach the affected places as quickly as possible, preventing people from dying from lack of drinking water. See some results in regions affected by earthquakes:
• 200 water filters were distributed on the island of Sumatra = 2000 people with access to clean water.
• In Haiti, there were 11,000 filters = 100,000 people with access to clean water.
• In Chile, 1000 filters were distributed = 10,000 people with access to clean water.
The project is planning to go to Japan to help the victims of the earthquake and tsunami . Learn more about the Waves for Water and how to help the project.
