Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
ClearCorrect LLC, a leading manufacturer of clear aligners, reached a milestone in its charitable project, Phase Out. Since the launch of its first initiative with charity: water (phase out unsafe drinking water) on January 1st, 2012, ClearCorrect has raised over $60,000, which will help about 3,000 people gain access to clean and safe drinking water.
Of the $60,000 raised so far, $36,555 has been allocated to funding the first five projects with charity: water in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The funding will help create spring protections, rainwater catchments and large-scale gravity-fed water systems that will have dozens of distribution points to serve a large population. These projects are planned for a mix of villages, schools and clinics with a strong focus on hygiene, sanitation training and community buy-in to ensure sustainability and prevention of water-borne diseases.
“It is hard to believe that there are still people out there that don’t have safe drinking water. Phase Out is an amazing effort and an amazing project and I’m proud to be a part of it.” - Dr. Annette Murphy, ClearCorrect provider.
When asked how long they intended to run the Phase Out project, Jarrett Pumphrey, ClearCorrect CEO, responded, "For as long as we can make a difference."
