Project Clean Water....Message from Jewel

Clean water is a necessity that we can no longer take for granted. Each year more people die of water related diseases than any other cause of death on this planet. With a higher rate of suffering and mortality than diabetes, cancer, high cholesterol, or war; or any two combined for that matter! An entire economy is growing around water. Those without money are suffering the most and risk severe illness from contaminated sources.

Project Clean Water targets villages around the world with clean water problems, and finds sustainable solutions to provide them with safe drinking water. For example, in Tanzania, one village's inhabitants had to hike for miles to get water from a muddy hole for their families and cattle. We provided them with a solar paneled well system, and installed it with the tribesmen. In Tibet, one village's only water source was a stagnant amoebae filled pool. We installed a filtration system, which meant not only could they enjoy clean water, but also solved many of the health problems plaguing the village. Our aim is to work with communities and governments to protect clean water supplies while restoring contaminated sources.

To date we have helped over 30 communities overcome their individual drinking water problems in 13 different countries, on 5 different continents. I have funded the project through ticket sales and donations. We run everything in-house, therefore I can personally guarantee the quality of our project.

I became interested in clean water when I was 18 and lived in my car. I had sick kidneys and had to drink 2 gallons of purified water a day. I could not afford to buy much bottled water, and it dawned on me that if it was this hard to get clean drinking water in the United States, then it was probably a huge global issue. Boy, was I right.

Solutions and technologies exist to provide clean, affordable drinking water anywhere in the world. These solutions will save lives, reduce financial burdens, foster peace, and relieve millions of people from worrying about their next drink of water.
