Project 24 aligns perfectly with our values at Medical Solutions as well as our philosophy of working hard to make the world a happier, healthier, better place. We are incredibly honored to help support this important effort.

Medical Solutions, one of the nation’s largest Travel Nurse staffing companies, is proud to sponsor Planet Water Foundation’s Project 24 on World Water Day, Thursday, March 22, 2018, as part of its Medical Solutions Gives initiative.

Established in 1993, World Water Day is an opportunity to celebrate water and make a positive impact in the lives of global community members who suffer from a lack of clean, safe water and other water-related issues.

In response to staggering statistics like the fact that one in eight people worldwide do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, the mission of Project 24 is “to move the hands of time forward in 24 impoverished communities by installing and commissioning 24 clean water filtration systems in just 24 hours.”

“As a nurse, I believe that Project 24 is an amazing effort because it saves and improves lives worldwide by creating healthier conditions in these communities,” says Amber Barna, BSN, RN and Clinical Director of Nursing at Medical Solutions. “Statistics show that half of all the world’s hospital beds are occupied with people suffering from waterborne diseases that — with better availability of sanitary water in their communities — should be otherwise easily preventable.”

At 4 p.m. (PHT) on Thursday, March 22, the Medical Solutions-sponsored clean water filtration system will go up at the Buntog Elementary School in the Philippines, where the only water source is a dirty, deep well nearly a mile away. The Medical Solutions water tower will provide access to clean water for bathing, cooking, drinking, and cleaning to 237 students and 489 households in the village of 2,000 people.

Medical Solutions previously sponsored the implementation of clean water filtration systems in Cambodia and Indonesia in 2012, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

“Our team is very proud to support Planet Water’s efforts to bring safe, clean water to the village of Buntog,” says Craig Meier, Medical Solutions CEO. “Project 24 aligns perfectly with our values at Medical Solutions as well as our philosophy of working hard to make the world a happier, healthier, better place. We are incredibly honored to help support this important effort.”
