Sawyer Products Supports Populations Impacted by Recent Disasters as 2021 Hurricane Season Enters Home Stretch
The Manufacturer of Industry-Leading Water Filtration Solutions Has Provided Critical Support to Those Affected by Recent Hurricanes and Earthquakes
SAFETY HARBOR, FL – October 1, 2021 – Sawyer Products, leaders in technologically advanced outdoor solutions and producers of world-class water filtration products, has played an active role in recent weeks by providing its water filters to thousands of at-need residents that have been impacted by Haiti’s recent 7.2-magnitude earthquake and Hurricane Ida. Over the last two months, Sawyer has donated or allocated more than 65,000 of its water filtration products to those with diminished access to clean drinking water, providing a potentially life-saving solution for up to 250,000 people per day.
Working with noteworthy partner organizations such as Hope for Haiti, Water With Blessings, Flying High 4 Haiti, Samaritan’s Purse, and Amazon’s Disaster Relief Hub, among many more, the task of getting water filters in residents’ hands was a true team effort that proved successful in the face of several challenges. In Haiti, both weather and civil unrest made logistics very difficult, in addition to the sheer impact of the earthquake on infrastructure. Thankfully, many of Sawyer’s bucket filter systems had previously been distributed to residents in the areas most impacted by the earthquake before it hit, underscoring the importance of preparation. For Hurricane Ida, Sawyer donated more than 1200 of its Tap Filter product, which can yield up to 500 gallons of clean drinking water per day, as well as thousands of sunscreen and insect repellent bottles to protect the relief and cleanup efforts.
