Editor's Announcement

See their website:
The goal is to provide clean drinking water in rural areas with contaminated water sources and no power: repurposing reprocessed hemodialyzers.

The Easy Water for Everyone concept follows the brilliant, patented idea of Professor Yoram Lass of Tel Aviv University, utilizing the hollow fibre hemodialyzer to purify water. The disposal of millions of hemodialyzers annually is a huge medical waste issue. To be repurposed for water purification, once-used hemodialyzers are resterilized and installed in the device as filters, taking advantage of the porosity of this synthetic membrane (polysulphone) and the robustness of its structure. The absolute pore size is 0.03 microns, which renders it impassable to all bacteria, viruses and parasites essential for use in hemodialysis treatments and just right for making pure drinking water.

This seems to be a wonderful idea. Please go to the website and donate to help this organization achieve its goals. On the website you can find a PayPal DONATE link where you can conveniently donate money using a credit card.
