Solutions for safe drinking water

Dave PowellWe are so fortunate to live in this great country of ours. There are many blessings available to us every day and they can be so common that we never even think about them. One of these is having pure, safe water available by just turning on a spigot.
This is not true in many parts of the world, where clean, safe drinking water is just not available. Rotary International has been addressing this problem around the globe. Many countries around the world have clean drinking water because of this organization.
Today we have a major problem in Haiti. Children and adults are dying of disease borne by unsanitary water. It is estimated that 3.5 million people die every year. If your concern is the children of the world, 4,000 of them die every day from water-borne illnesses. Many of these are in Haiti.
