Thirteen winning products have been selected that address three common challenges faced in the immediate aftermath of a humanitarian crisis: water, energy and shelter.

SpaTap was selected as a winner due to its innovative water dispensing technology.

The truth is, millions of people share taps with hundreds of other people and often these taps are the source of contamination, responsible for the deaths of over 2,000 child everyday. That is more than AIDs,malaria, and measles combined!

And yet, something as simple as hand washing with clean flowing water we could reduce these fatalities by half. That’s a thousand lives saved per day.

In contrast, the chances are that viewers/readers of this communication have a plentiful supply of clean drinking water available through multiple taps in their homes and and are at they are significantly less risk of infection, disease and death.

What would it mean to you to know that you have participated in assisting a unified global movement that is committed to giving everybody access to clean water.

So, that everybody on the planet has the equal right to enjoy what we take for granted, access to clean water, so that we can, together reduce the number of deaths caused by contaminated water and dirty communal taps.

Can you imagine a world where we have an abundance of fresh clean water and access to it for washing, drinking, cooking, first aid, religious practices? Can you imagine if we could change the lives of just one person so that they can wash their hands every day and have a clean and healthier future?

You need to help me achieve my plan, I want to make sure that everyone on this planet has access to their own tap.

I need you to help me save the lives of the millions of people that die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related diseases.  I know how we can solve this problem.

So if this is something you want to be part of, a massive change in how the world uses water, then this is something that I can make happen with your help.  Please just give me 1 minute of your time and then we will change the lives of millions of people.

Please share this press release about SpaTap’s 1st prize win of the Australian Government’s Humanitarian Supplies Challenge,

We are seeking partnerships and introductions to charities, CEOs, governments, philanthropists, patrons, media, that can help us achieve our goal of giving the whole world a tap.

So if you believe people in the world have the right to access clean fresh water.
