Argonide Corporation has committed to providing 25 filters Wishing Well International Foundation’s 10-1-10 Africa Expedition. The expected water output and lifespan of the 25 biofilters will result in clean, safe drinking water for 250 people over 10 years. The Expedition is a two-week adventure in which representatives and sponsors of Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) will travel across southern Africa to deploy filters in areas that lack access to safe water.
Argonide is part of an increasing contingent of WQA-member companies that are providing clean water for people who don’t have access to it, particularly in developing countries. In many cases, local water sources are polluted with harmful contaminants which make the water unsafe for consumption. By sponsoring WWIF events, these companies are making a real difference in these communities. Their sponsorship funds enable WWIF to deploy long-lasting biofilters in strategic locations so that polluted water can become safe to drink.
“Water is the basis of our bodies, making up 50 to 75% of it,” said Raymond Knispel, Executive Vice President at Argonide. “Our contribution towards this Expedition is a tangible way of helping those who don’t have access to clean water. If their water is clean, they can be healthy, which is all that matters.”
