UV-LED water sterilizer / Clean Water through UV Light

PuriLight sterilizes viruses and bacteria in contaminated water and personal hygiene products. We expect many people in remote and disaster areas to be protected from waterborne diseases by using PuriLight. 270 units of PuriLight were distributed to a small town in Mikese, Tanzania, and it showed great improvement on incidence of typhoid fever in the town by reducing the rate from 30% 2%. The second outcome was the hospital's feedback that PuriLIght gave good result in terms of sterilization of drinking water, milk bottles, and personal care products for mothers and newborns in Chaurjahari Rukum, Nepal.
