Deerfield Beach, FL – July 17, 2017 – With its 10-1-10 Africa Expedition only six weeks away, Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) gained some valuable exposure for its clean-water mission. Two WWIF representatives, Issa Al-Kharusy and Ken Lister, were interviewed by Khuluma, the in-flight magazine for Kulula, a South African airline which focuses on flights to and from Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.

Al-Kharusy is CEO of KDF Fluid Treatment and Senior VP of Strategic Development & Global Marketing for WWIF USA. He was also recently elected to the WQA’s Board of Directors. Ken Lister is Financial & Operations Director for H2O International South Africa and is on the Board of Directors of WWIF South Africa.

Al-Kharusy and Lister were separately interviewed by Khuluma for its August edition. They both discussed the ongoing work of the Foundation to provide clean, safe drinking water in developing areas. “My wife, Denise, and I wanted to get involved in the cause of Wishing Well International from the day it was a concept,” Al-Kharusy said. “We believe in the mission of saving lives by providing safe water for human consumption. Becoming a sponsor for the expedition was a natural extension of our support of the overall mission of the Foundation.”

In their interviews, Al-Kharusy and Lister provided details about the 10-1-10 Africa Expedition, which starts on August 25 and ends on September 3. The full interviews will be featured in Khuluma’s August edition and online at
