“Safe water and sanitation leaves a lasting legacy. Working with Haitians and Hondurans who want to change their lives is life changing for me. Seeing the results of healthy children and people, not being sick with waterborne diseases, drives home the point of why I love the work that I do with PWW.”


Paulina Bendana, Member
Retired, (from a career in aerospace)
“Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is a critical need in developing countries. Pure Water for the World is a leader in the field of providing sustainable clean water and sanitation solutions for some of the poorest communities, in areas where people have little or no access to clean water and sanitation infrastructure, working closely and with community members to assess their needs and provide technologically and economically appropriate capacity. Furthermore – and one of the key reasons why I am passionate about Pure Water for the World – is the education and training it provides to the local communities, empowering families and community leaders to address their clean water and sanitation needs on a sustainable, long-term basis.”


William “Bill” Donberg, Member
Flight Instructor / Adjunct Professor, Northwestern Michigan College
“PWW has a unique view of how lives of the materially and spiritually “poor” can be improved. It operates on the premise that everyone can solve their own problems given the right tools. And, in the end, that is the only sustainable solution because it changes everything.”

“On my first trip to Haiti with a Rotary International District mission, I installed biosand water filters. Understanding what clean water would do for the Haitians, and indeed anyone (provide relief from sicknesses, support healthy children going to school, to eventually be raised out of the cycle of poverty, and more), was an epiphany for me. Pure Water for the World isn’t just filters; it’s education and sustainable solutions.”
