TREVOSE, Pa., June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Platinum Advertising is proud to have sponsored the third annual clean water expedition to Honduras.
A team of 14 volunteers from the Rotary International's Wesley Chapel, Fla. chapter made an excursion to the tropical mountains of southern Honduras order to install clean water filtration systems and sanitary lavatory facilities.
The team of volunteers worked in small, isolated communities that did not have quality water for agriculture, drinking, cooking or bathing. The only water available was infested with grime and bacteria, which led to all sorts of disease outbreaks and a high infant mortality rate.
Partnered with Pure Water for the World, the group worked tirelessly from April 6-12 to install filtration systems in 50 homes. Clean useable and drinkable water became available to more than 150 Honduran children as a result of their efforts.
In addition, the team also constructed several lavatory systems across area schools to manage waste disposal and help prevent the spreading of disease. The World Health Organization estimates that 3.1 million children worldwide die each year because of water contamination.
"Platinum Advertising is privileged to be able to contribute for the third year consecutively to a cause that will help prevent suffering and even save lives," said Platinum Advertising's President and CEO Bill Siveter.
"Platinum Advertising has continued to show its support throughout our central mission, for without which, our success would be much more limited," stated Ben Alexander, president of Rotary International's Wesley Chapel, Fla. chapter.
Pure Water for the World is a non-profit organization that provides adaptable water purification systems free of charge to communities without access to a quality drinking supply worldwide.
Platinum Advertising is a proud partner of Rotary International and Pure Water for the World in their greater effort to ensure everyone has access to clean, life-sustaining drinking water worldwide.
