Kudos to David Fischer, President and CEO of Greif, Inc., for recognition in the January issue of Leaders magazine. The article features Mr. Fisher’s personal involvement with the development of the water backpack, details how PackH2O is a catalyst for solving the Global Water Crisis, and highlights some of the awards and acknowledgements PackH2O has received in the last year.
Partners for Care Kenya is seen as one of the most successful NGO’s working with the pack. Kenyan recipients are ecstatic about the backpack, as it helps to keep the water clean and cool. One man walked 6 hours to see how he could receive a backpack: he was tired of the sickness due to water-borne illness and his money being used for medicines instead of educating his children. The mandate is clear; as Mr. Fischer stated, “…we have the opportunity to build futures. We can’t walk away from this.”
Community members in Kenya have spoken;
the PackH2O water backpack is changing their lives in a positive way.
