EDIT
Clean Water: A Simple Solution Saves Lives
AIRED:
Today, over a billion people do not have clean drinking water. But Dr. Greg Allgood is helping change that. He is providing millions with clean water through a simple water purification packets developed by Proctor and Gamble and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr. Allgood, head of the Children's Safe Drinking Program, tells correspondent Miles Benson how this simple solution is saving and transforming lives. The PUR® packets contain a powder that removes dirt and pollutants like arsenic as well as more than 99.9% of parasites, viruses, and bacteria. PUR® packets also reduce diarrheal illness by up to 90% in particularly vulnerable people like those living in refugee camps.moreless
