If every school house across Africa, India, China, South America, etc were outfitted with RainCatchers (gutters, tanks & filters) children around the world would have their own source of pure drinking water.
Huntington Beach, CA (Vocus) February 20, 2009
Gleen Clean Inc, (http://www.gleenclean.com) a Huntington Beach, CA. manufacturer of "Green" cleaning products has partnered up with the RainCatcher organization (http://www.raincatcher.org) and Tribal Praise Ministries a 501(c)(3) non profit organization to provide thousands of people in Uganda, Africa with clean, purified water. Gleen Clean Inc. is dedicated to making the world cleaner, healthier more socially responsible. They donate a portion of all the companies proceeds to non profit organizations and charities to bring much needed resources to third world countries. They have chosen to work with the RainCatcher and Tribal Praise Ministries organizations to launch their Inaugural Humanitarian Project.
Gleen Clean's goal is to raise $100,000 by July 2009, to build 60 Rain Catcher Systems in areas of Africa where clean water is not readily available. This effort will also help to eliminate disease and deaths caused by contaminated water. The Rain Catcher systems will be installed on School's, Orphanages and Churches in the Kampala region. The 60 systems will provide ongoing clean water for tens of thousands of people a year.
Gleen Clean's founder and CEO, Gilbert Antolin has this to say, "We hear a lot about the 'Global Water Shortage' but the Fact-of-Nature is this: There isn't a shortage of water given, just a shortage of water received. Mr. Antolin was part of a missionary group organized by Tribal Praise Ministries that visited Africa in Spring of 2008. He helped to raise $60,000 for projects in Uganda and Burundi, Africa. Mr. Antolin was able to witness firsthand the water epidemic during his visit . He states " During my two week visit there, it rained extremely hard every day for a few hours. I was shocked to see there was a lack of clean water, and yet the streets were continually flooded."
The RainCatcher device catches the falling rain water , then purifies and stores it in large containers. The RainCatcher was selected because it was more readily available, less expensive , and self sustaining, unlike water wells. Because it has no motorized parts, the RainCatcher provides a reliable source of clean water, with minimal maintenance.
Gilbert Antolin further state, "If every school house across Africa, India, China, South America, etc were outfitted with RainCatchers (gutters, tanks & filters) children around the world would have their own source of pure drinking water."
Mr. Antolin and a team of individuals will be traveling to Uganda, Africa July 15th to the 28th, 2009 to see the construction of the first 5 of the 60 new RainCatcher Systems. Mr. Antolin will be working closely with Stephen Asiimwe President of the "East African Business Week" newspaper in Uganda, in selecting the locations that will receive the purification devices.
