Vestergaard has announced the donation of water purification tanks with clean water to 301 schools in Kenya, probably representing the biggest donation of the kind in Africa. It will benefit more than 125,000 children, many of whom will be encouraged to go to school to be able to drink the water. The schools are being visited by 16 teams of trained health educators who will also distribute soap for handwashing and train the local people in the use of the purifiers. The donation is much higher than previously expected. It is based on one child getting clean and safe drinking water for one year for each LifeStraw bottle sold. As previously reported in The Compass (vol. 7-13+14, July 11, 2014), hundreds of European stores have started buying and selling the bottles, which can filter up to 1,000 liters of water down to 0.2 microns. The bottles are marketed in Europe by a Danish company, WaterNlife. Vestergaard already donated family water purifiers to 877,505 households in Kenya three years ago.
