Medical Solutions Sponsors Planet Water's Project 24 for World Water Day
Medical Solutions, one of the nation’s largest Travel Nurse staffing companies, is proud to sponsor Planet Water Foundation’s Project 24 on World Water Day, Tuesday, March 22, 2016.
Established in 1993, World Water Day is an opportunity to celebrate water and make a positive impact in the lives of global community members who suffer from a lack of clean, safe water and other water-related issues.
In response to staggering statistics like the fact that one in eight people worldwide do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, the mission of Project 24 is “to move the hands of time forward in 24 impoverished communities by installing and commissioning 24 clean water filtration systems in just 24 hours.”
“Particularly as a nurse, I think Project 24 is an amazing, life-saving mission,” says Amber Barna, BSN, RN and Clinical Director of Nursing at Medical Solutions. “Statistics show that half of all the world’s hospital beds are occupied with people suffering from waterborne diseases that, with the availability of clean water within their communities, should be otherwise easily preventable.”
At 12 a.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, March 22, the Medical Solutions-sponsored clean water filtration system will go up at the Paciano Rizal Elementary School in the Philippines, which is located near a polluted river that causes poor water quality. The Medical Solutions water tower will provide access to clean water for bathing, cooking, drinking, and cleaning to 508 students and 1,100 households in the village of 5,540 people.
Medical Solutions previously sponsored the implementation of clean water filtration systems in 2012 and 2015 in Cambodia.
“The Medical Solutions team is incredibly proud to support Planet Water’s efforts to bring clean, safe water to Paciano Rizal,” says Craig Meier, CEO at Medical Solutions. “Project 24 aligns perfectly with our values and philosophy of working hard to make the world a happier, healthier, better place. We are absolutely honored to be a part of this important operation.”

ABOUT PLANET WATER: Planet Water is a U.S.-based, non-profit international development organization focused on bringing clean water to the world’s most disadvantaged communities through the installation of community-based water filtration systems and education programs on water-health & hygiene. Our projects are focused on schools, children, and rural communities who lack access to clean, safe water. Learn more at Planet-Water.org.
