Why am I fundraising?
Goonj is extending relief to the survivors / victims of the recent earth quake in Nepal. Water is in scarce supply and there is also an issue of contamination post the calamity, which creates a high risk for water-borne epidemics.
We are raising funds to aquire light-weight and water filters (Lifestraw) which can transform microbiologically contaminated water into safe, clean drinking water - ideal for people displaced by natural calamities.
Feetoffground [http://www.feetoffground.com] headed by Aalok Bharadwaj is working with us to source the product from a wholesaler, and he has also very kindly offered to give us a handful of Lifestraw personals at no cost.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
Purchase about 100 Lifestraw Bottle's called Lifestraw Go [http://www.vestergaard.com/lifestraw-go] , which have a capacity of filtering about 1000 litres / 264 gallons per bottle.
10% of the funds will go towards logistics - direct shipment from wholesaler , freight charges and taxes.
