Water Wishes was founded to help alleviate the death and illness connected to unsafe water around the world. The goal of the non-profit organization is to provide low cost water filtration systems that can substantially change the quality of life. Many water well programs are expensive and ineffective. The filters provided by Water Wishes uses the latest technology that offers a unique and cost effective way to filter water. The system’s mobility also allows for increased flexibility during disaster relief and aid.
Water Wishes concentrates its efforts on impoverished regions and areas in need of disaster relief throughout the United States and the world. Recently completed projects have been in Nicaragua, Kenya, Uganda, and Congo with future projects in development.
