Deerfield Beach, FL – September 30, 2011 – Amway Corporation becomes a Platinum Corporate Sponsor.Amway Corporation of ADA Michigan joins the growing list of sponsors for Wishing Well International Foundation. Amway has been involved in Corporate Social Responsibility programs for a long time and is closely involved with the Safe Water Team (SWT), a Michigan NGO Wishing Well just partnered with in order to broaden its reach to people in need. SWT has set up distribution centers in Haiti, Dominican Republic, Honduras and Ghana. A meeting has been set up at Amway’s headquarters early October to discuss details of the collaboration between WWIF and SWT.
Ken Conrad, a scientist working for Amway introduced WWIF to his work in Ghana and also introduced the foundation to the Biosand filter the foundation now distributes to developing araeas. Ken had done a lot of research with the system and was convinced this system was the most sustainable system he had come across. Ken lost his battle with Cancer last May.
Roy Kuennen, Ph.D., Director Durables R&D for Amway has this to say about their sponsorship to WWIF: “Amway is proud to support the mission of Wishing Well International Foundation in the name of Kenneth E. Conrad. Ken devoted 17 years of his life working on water treatment technologies at Amway and was motivated to bring clean, safe drinking water to people around the world in order to help them live better lives.
