What is this all about?
LifeStraw has launched a LifeStraw safe water fund for Brazil to bring high-volume LifeStraw Community water purifiers and safe water education to schools in villages in the northeast region of Brazil, more specifically to the State of Piaui- Caridade do Piaui and Curral Novo do Piaui.
Over the next month, we will be raising awareness and raising funds from individuals and teams to make this happen.
Each purifier serves 75-100 school children. Each lasts 3-5 years and is capable of filtering approximately 100,000 liters of water.
A Serious Need
· Globally, 2.5 million kids miss school each day because of illnesses from unsafe water.
· More than 34 million Brazilians and 75% of rural schools across the country don’t have consistent access to safe water.
