Sawyer Water Filters for Puerto Rico


 A humanitarian crisis is building in Puerto Rico as a result of the 2017k hurricanes. We’ve decided to create a GoFundMe page to raise funds to help those in dire need of CLEAN water on the island. Utilizing a hollow fiber membrane filter, the Sawyer system yields 1.3 liters of potable water per minute. Filter physically removes particles, protozoa, and bacteria down to 0.1 micron in size, including giardia, salmonella and cryptosporidia.
We will also be putting our trust in the "Facebook Civilian Veterans” aka Grunt Rescue who can help identify and deliver the Filters to some of those areas. Please help us help Puerto Rico!! Every little bit helps.
