Facts:
  • 884 million people in the world do not have access to clean water.
  • 1.6 million children die each year from waterborne diseases.
  • The Millennium Development Goal on child survival (MDG 4) will remain beyond our reach until diarrheal disease, poor sanitation and unsafe drinking water issues are addressed.

Join us for a Once-in-a-Lifetime Event to Save Lives

The 10-1-10 Africa Expedition is a ten-day event in South Africa and Swaziland in which representatives and sponsors of  Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) will travel in a convoy of 4×4 vehicles to deploy water filtration systems in communities lacking clean water. The event provides an extraordinary opportunity for donors and sponsors to see the impact of their giving.  

OUR GOALS ARE

  • To increase global awareness of the WWIF mission
  • To convert donors into clean-water advocates
  • To deploy 150 to 200 filters impacting 1,500 to 2,000 people
  • To raise $500,000 for future clean-water projects

The plan for this event is to make an impact now and later. By deploying 150-200 filters during the May 2017 Expedition, up to 2000 people will immediately be provided with clean, safe drinking water for the next 10 years. Moreover, by filling the sponsorships for the event, we’ll be able to conduct similar deployments over the next two years to impact 50,000 people.

OUR PLAN

Local South African drivers will navigate through the terrain from village to village. All expedition members will assist in the effort to install biofilters at predetermined sites. Media specialists will capture footage to document the activities. We’ll camp overnight and make stops at several national parks and game reserves. Our experienced guides and medical professionals will make every effort to ensure a safe and successful expedition.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Join us as a team member during the expedition. All who attend will be trained to assemble and install filters. If you are not able to attend, sponsor someone else who is able to go. Several sponsorship opportunities are available. Sponsor a vehicle, the beverages and food for the team or even a filter. We hope to convey the importance of this cause to corporations and private donors. If $100 can make such an impact for so many people, just imagine how many lives will be saved by your generous sponsorship.

HOW DO THE FILTERS WORK?

Our Hydraid biosand filters are a simple yet effective method for reducing bacteria and viruses in water. They use gravity rather than pressure or electricity to pass the water through the filtering media. After installation, each $100 filter can be used by at least 10 people for 10 years. The newer technology of our biofoam filters effectively removes contaminants to an even greater degree. The affordability, ease of use and minimal maintenance of the biosand and biofoam filters make them the most proven and sustainable filtration methods for rural areas.
