Clean Water

Did you know that over 4 million people die worldwide every year because they do not have clean water to drink?  One child dies every 15 seconds due to waterborne diseases.  This can be prevented.

As one of our international projects, we partner with Thirsting to Serve, which was formed by our own Rotary District 6290 to help the district clubs in their efforts to provide clean drinking water to people around the world.

One of the ways our club has been involved is in purchasing BioSand filters.  You can learn more about these at  And when you visit the Hydraid website, check out the special section for Rotary District 6290 which talks about how a club could provide water for an entire village.

You can watch the videos below showing some of the projects completed between Rotary District 6290 and the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa de Copan.
