Deerfield Beach, FL – Decenber 15, 2015 – The Argonide Corporation of Sanford, Florida has committed to providing 25 filters for the 10-1-10 Africa Expedition. The expected water output and lifespan of the 25 biofilters will result in clean, safe drinking water for 250 people over 10 years. The Expedition is a two-week adventure in which representatives and sponsors of Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) will travel across southern Africa to deploy filters in areas that lack access to safe water.
Like many other WWIF sponsors, Argonide is operated by water purification experts who are familiar with the need for clean water around the world. The company’s main product is NanoCeram®, which uses nanofibers to rid water of bacteria, viruses and cysts within a variety of products that use the technology. Argonide is part of a growing contingent of WQA-member companies that are providing clean water for people who don’t have access to it, particularly in developing countries. In many cases, local water sources are polluted with harmful contaminants which make the water unsafe for consumption. By sponsoring WWIF events, these companies are making a real difference in these communities. Their sponsorship funds enable WWIF to deploy long-lasting biofilters in strategic locations so that polluted water can become safe to drink.
“Water is the basis of our bodies, making up 50 to 75% of it,” said Raymond Knispel, Executive Vice President at Argonide. “Our contribution towards this Expedition is a tangible way of helping those who don’t have access to clean water. If their water is clean, they can be healthy, which is all that matters.”
At $100 each, the 25 filters provided by Argonide will make a substantial difference for 250 people for 10 years, creating an immediate improvement in the quality of life of those who drink the filtered water. “If a mother no longer has to spend half the day fetching water from miles away, she can spend that time with her children” said Guillermo Guzman, Founder & CEO of WWIF. “Without the threat of contaminated water and all of its diseases, families can spend more time in other pursuits. We’re thankful for Argonide’s sponsorship and their support of our efforts.”
The 10-1-10 Africa Expedition is 5 months away. WWIF representatives recently returned from South Africa where they further planned the route, itinerary and filter locations for the May 2016 event. Additional event sponsors are needed in order to have the greatest possible impact.
