Rockwall man camps out on open barge on Lake Ray Hubbard until $2M raised for clean water
“Every single human being in this world deserves access to safe drinking water,” said Phillips.
“We hope our efforts will open up the dialogue on clean water initiatives and bring this notion to fruition – not just for Liberia, but across the globe.” The Last Well, a nonprofit in Rockwall, Texas, is committed to bringing safe drinking water to the entire country of Liberia by 2020.
“Since 2009, our teams have been on the ground in Liberia drilling wells and distributing Sawyer International PointONE water filters to families and teaching them how to use and maintain them,” said Phillips.
“We are proud to be part of The Last Well’s efforts to help bring clean water to all Liberian families,” said Darrel Larson, international director of Sawyer Products.
“When we heard about its founder and president, Todd Phillips, camping out on a barge east of Dallas, Texas, we immediately wanted to support the cause and show how our water filters and the training can be the puzzle pieces that solve the infinite clean water issue across the globe.” To help achieve the Last Well’s goal in Liberia, Sawyer International has donated nearly 120,000 Sawyer PointONE water filter systems that teams are distributing in communities and rural areas in Liberia, as well as teaching Liberians how to use and clean the filters while tracking health and economic outcomes through a GIS system.
“With 27 months to go, the finish line is on the horizon,” Phillips added.
