Half of the world's poor suffer from waterborne disease, and nearly 6,000 people - mainly children - die from
diseases contracted from unsafe drinking water every day.
LifeStraw® water purifiers have been developed as a practical way of preventing disease and saving lives, as well as achieving the Millennium Development Goal of
reducing by one-half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe water by the year 2015.
LifeStraw® and LifeStraw® Family are complimentary point-of-use water filters - truly unique offerings from
Vestergaard Frandsen that will help people obtain safe drinking water at home and outside - paving the way to accomplishing the MDGs.
