Louisville, TN-based non-profit WaterStep has returned from a week-long trip to aid those affected by Hurricane Florence in North Carolina. Five organization members provided 10 disaster relief kits that were able to purify water, as well as generate chlorine and bleach for disinfection and sanitation. The group set up water purification and disinfection equipment in several locations, many of which rely on well water (that had been contaminated for over a week) for their safe water needs. Locals were also trained to operate and maintain the units. To donate to WaterStep’s disaster relief efforts and help provide safe water to disaster survivors, visit WaterStep.org/donate.
