More Partnerships with Give Clean Water
We're less than a month away from a very special event in Fiji. The 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro features 34 of the top surfers in the world at one of the world's best surf spots, Tavarua Island, home to Cloudbreak and Restaurants.
While the contest is amazing, I'm most excited about the lives that will be changed during this contest! Give Clean Water is teaming up with Volcom, Tavarua Island, Islands Restaurants, Surf Credits, and the Fiji Ministry of Health to bring the gift of clean, bacteria free drinking water to two more Fijian villages.
During last year's event, Momi and Nabila village each received filters for every family who lives there. Thanks to this great partnership and our commitment to sustainability, I'm happy to report that both Momi and Nabila have 100% use of their filters at their 1 year anniversary! A special "thank you" to the Fiji Ministry of Health and their wonderful village health workers who have been so diligent with monthly follow up education and reporting in the villages. There has been an amazing turn around in the health of the villages thanks to the water filters!
Here's a look back at last year's event!
