In late November 2010 WWIF visited the Township of Wallacedene in Cape Town, South Africa. WWIF founder Guillermo Guzman and Tony Marchesini of H2O International South Africa met with leaders of the Township to discuss WWIF’s involvement in the community. WWIF will supply water filtering systems and coolers to the school, the church and the clinic. Filters and water coolers will be installed during a community event where residents will be educated on the importance of drinking clean safe drinking water.
The above meetings were made possible with the help of Shiloh, a local Non-Profit already performing work within the community. WWIF will continue working with Shiloh and other local Non-Profit organizations in order to maximize its reach to areas in need.
The water filtering systems and coolers were donated by H2O International Inc. of Deerfield Beach and H2O International South Africa. The installation and maintenance will be carried out by H2O International South Africa.
