LifeStraw® is made by Vestergaard-Frandsen and is used to clean water that's filled with disease. Lack of access to safe drinking water contributes to the staggering burden of diarrhoeal diseases worldwide, particularly affecting the young, the immunocompromised and the poor. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhoea. Diarrhoea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined . Drinking contaminated water also leads to reduced personal productive time, with widespread economic effects. LifeStraw® and STARBOARDERS are ready to MAKE A CHANGE! See the videos below to see the LifeStraw® in action and you can also donate DIRECTLY to LifeStraw in any amount you'd like!
