    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    What would happen if a common tree had the potential to turn cloudy, contaminated water into clean, safe drinking water for millions in need?

    Lack of potable water is a huge problem in the DRC. According to UNICEF, 783 million people worldwide are without improved drinking water, and the World Health Organization estimates that lack of proper drinking water causes 1.6 million deaths each year from diarrheal and parasitic diseases.

    Part of the problem is that many of these countries must import expensive chemicals to clarify the water, limiting the amount they can afford to produce.

    But there may be an alternative.

    The Moringa oleifera tree grows abundantly throughout many tropical and subtropical regions of the world. It reaches fruition in only six months and is already being used in many areas as a food source. The seedpods, seeds, leaves, roots and flowers are all edible and nutritious.

    In addition to these benefits, something in the tree’s seeds has the ability to kill bacteria and clarify water.

    Using natural materials to clarify water is a technique that has been practiced for centuries and of all the materials that have been used, seeds of the Moringa have been found to be one of the most effective.

    Studies have been conducted since the early 1970's to test the effectiveness of Moringa seeds for treating water. These studies have confirmed that the seeds are highly effective in removing suspended particles from water.
