Helioz Wadi Crowdfunding

Help us bring safe drinking water to children around the world! Join the crowdfunding-event to be part of our project and share the information with your friends and family! Support us at http://igg.me/at/wadi. Every EURO counts!

At Helioz, an Austrian social enterprise, we raise the funds necessary to prove that millions of people around the world can be granted access to safe drinking water using only the power of the sun. An innovative device called WADI will help to improve lives of people in developing countries. The money will be collected through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo – http://igg.me/at/wadi – and will help finance an unprecendented health impact study in India.

Safe drinking water by using the power of the sun? What may sound like a fairytale stands at the center of the Austrian startup Helioz. Helioz developed a UV-measurement device that tracks the progress of solar water disinfection in a PET-bottle. Simply attach WADI to a bottle filled with contaminated water, lay it in the sun and wait for the smiley face to appear. Thanks to the power of the sun’s UV-rays and WADI’s continuous measurement, you can be sure the water is safe to drink. Helioz will use the money they raise on Indiegogo to conduct a scientific health impact study in India, where 400,000 children under the age of 5 die as a result of waterborne diseases each year. The study aims at proving WADI’s effectiveness by verifying at least a 50% reduction of waterborne diseases by use of WADI. See the transformative effect of WADI and be part of the solution for one of the biggest problems facing humanity – the water crisis.
