“With the help of Disaster Aid Canada we were able to bring in 12 of your Point Zero Two Systems. We brought the kits from Victoria with us along with other aid into Dalla Township in Burma. We bought the buckets in the plastic market in Yangon and hired porters to take them to the village. Here are some photographs of us setting up the systems and giving them away. You have no idea of what a blessing this was for this village.
We set up this system at the beginning of Feb. We also had the instructions translated and printed up in Burmese. We are going back again next year with more aid. They are very poor and much of the area drinks water from ponds and ditches they dig by hand to collect the water from the rainy season. 17 children live in this wooden shack.”

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Fresh drinking water is essential. This water filtration system ensures you will never run out as long as there is a nearby natural water source. It can filter out bacteria, protozoa and microplastics.
Faster and more efficient than pumping or waiting for chemical treatments, the Sawyer Squeeze System offers on-the-go hydration at a good flow. This product is long-lasting, affordable, reliable, cleanable, and very user-friendly.
But Sawyer was way ahead of me — 15 years ahead, to be precise. In 2008, the brand started its Clean Water for All initiative, which provides Sawyer filters to developing countries around the world. And the company spends 90% of its profits funding it.
