We are excited to announce that, this month—because of your generosity and compassion—we will be installing two water purification systems for this project in China: one at Jingeng Rehabilitation Hospital and another at Jinrui Rehabilitation Center in Henan Province. Both do incredible work treating children with cerebral palsy (CP). Started by a woman whose own daughter has CP, the hospital and center treat hundreds of kids each month, many of whom reside at the hospitals for months at a time.Until this month, the hospitals spent upwards of US$200/month on bottled water for drinking. The new water systems will provide not just clean water for drinking, but also for food preparation, hand washing, and bathing. Each water purification system uses a remarkable technology called ultrafiltration, which removes 99.999% of biological contaminants that can cause severe illness in children, such as E. Coli and giardia. Manufactured by the A.J. Antunes Company, they are the same water systems used throughout restaurant and hotel chains in China to provide high quality, safe water for paying customers. With your help, we are able to bring that same high standard of service—along with a 10-year commitment of spare parts, training, maintenance, and support—to children in pediatric hospitals in China. In year 11, Jingeng and Jinrui will take over full ownership of their water systems, plus they will have the support and knowledge they need to keep clean water flowing for the long term. It is only with your support that we are able to bring clean water to these children! Thank you!!Please stay tuned—our next update will include photos of both sites, with more details on the actual installations. In the meantime, check out another recent site where we just installed a water system in January: Kaifeng City Yager Deaf & Mute Children School. It was funded by three kids who spent three summers in New York selling lemonade to raise money for clean water in China—pretty amazing (like you)!
