Hurricane Ian hits Florida

Just a few days ago, Hurricane Ian hit the West coast of Florida moving all across the state as one of the most devastating Florida Hurricanes ever, leaving thousands and thousands of households without electricity and clean, safe drinking water.

Florida Disaster Relief - Sawyer Tap Filter poster RipplAffectHurricane Ian, one of the most powerful storms ever to strike the US mainland, has battered south-west Florida with high winds, rain and storm surges. It especially highlighted the vulnerabilities of older mobile homes, many of which in a number of counties continue to be on Water Boil Notice.

In collaboration with Florida Volusia County Health Department and Advent Health We will provide people in need with Sawyer Tap Filters and Hygiene Kits at FEMA disaster centers.

Please Donate Today to help us raise funds to provide Tap Water Filters and Hygiene Kits soon and help people in Florida during this natural disaster. 100% of your donations will go directly towards providing urgent help to Floridians as the full scope of Ian’s destruction becomes clearer.
