Rotarians See Water-Purifying, Life-Saving Device


Joette Deane, left, in the above photo, is showing Fulton Rotary Club president, David Cramer, how a device the size of the average garbage pail, and costing only $75, can supply a family of 6-8 with a system of clean filtered potable water for the rest of their lives.  The can is filled with sand and gravel.   Water of questionable quality is added to the filter at the top.  The water is filtered through the sand and gravel and then is collected in a clean container, pure and clean enough for drinking.  Thousands of homes in Honduras and other Central American countries could use this simple solution to avoid illness from water borne diseases.  Worldwide, 5,000 people die each day due to water borne diseases.  Rotary International, through its more than 33,000 Rotary Clubs is committed to stopping these terrible, preventable deaths.
