The Need for Safe Water
Every Person Deserves It
Water contamination, from bacteria and other pathogens, is a major cause of disease and illnesses and is a global health crisis affecting billions of people. When people drink contaminated water, they live in a cycle of ill-health.
Children routinely miss school. Women spend many hours taking care of the sick and their family’s daily water supply. Economic opportunities are missed and long-term health issues prevail.
No one should get sick from drinking water. And it should not affect the ability to go to school, work or have a decent quality of life!
So what is being done to address the global drinking water crisis?
- All over the world, humanitarian groups, service clubs and mission-based organizations dig wells, install filter technologies, distribute chemical purifiers, address sanitation issues and educate families about safe water.
- Disaster and relief organizations stand ready to bring in bottled water and water disinfection products when disasters or humanitarian crises strike.
- Water advocacy groups work diligently to raise awareness about the plight of communities without reliable drinking water sources.
- Local citizens, who understand the challenges and realities of unsafe water in their communities, embrace opportunities to import, distribute and sell solutions to address the needs.
Yet water contamination remains widely prevalent, despite the good efforts of these organizations
What is Safe Water?
To understand the water contamination cycle, it is important to know the difference between access to water, clean water and safe water. Each has its challenges and each is not an easy nor simple problem to solve. The goal at MadiDrop PBC is to provide the highest level of protection against waterborne illness. Ensuring safe water is the important part MadiDrop PBC plays in the water crisis.
Water Access – The First Challenge
As a big part of the crisis, access to water is best defined by:
- The distances people need to travel to get water
- The type of water source (lake, river, well, etc.)
- The quality of the source (clean or contaminated).
Many organizations are doing great work to address this challenge – drilling wells, installing pumps and providing solutions for transporting water. This is important and valued work, but does not fully address the crisis. Water from a well might look clean, but may still cause illness and disease. Access alone does not mean safe water.
Clean Water – The Next Challenge
Removing dirt and other dissolved solids from water improves the look and taste, but may not address the disease that cannot be seen. Many techniques and solutions work well at the first, but not the second. Others do an excellent job of both, however do not protect against secondary contamination.
IF CLEAN WATER IS PLACED IN A DIRTY CONTAINER, IT'S NO LONGER SAFE.
Access to pre-filtered water or a reliable source of clean water does nothing to prevent recontamination due to poor sanitation and hygiene conditions or unsafe storage practices.
The great thing about the M-Drop is it can work harmoniously with these other solutions. It should not matter how the water is accessed, cleaned or stored, people should have the means to keep their water safe. This is what the M-Drop provides; continuous protection against contamination because it stays in the water container.
Safe Water – The Goal
Safe water is clean, free of disease and contamination, and remains that way. The M-Drop provides a low cost and all natural way to effectively remove the waterborne pathogens that cause illness, disease, and death AND it also provides ongoing protection against secondary contamination – All without changing the taste or smell of the water. A true safe water solution!
