For Water//Forest and Seas


Jacks Point NZ

Project Overview


We're Liz & Jeremy from New Zealand, together with our young sons Noah (aged 7) and Tyler (aged 5) we like to travel, especially by overland vehicle. We've become an ambassador for 'waves for water' with the hopes to deliver water filters to local communities and schools that lack access to clean drinking water.

We aim to give back through doing what we love, and as waves for water states, there are so many problems in the world that are seemingly unsolvable, water is not one of them. These water filters are designed to eliminate waterborne diseases, cysts, and parasites which causes sickness and death to young kids the same age as our two boys. More than 800 million people worldwide don't have access to clean drinking water and it's estimated that 4,000 children die each day from a lack of safe water.

We want to change that. We want to teach our boys that anything is possible if you are just willing to try.

We're starting with a goal of 50 filters. 50 filters will impact 5,000 people, (that makes my heart sing) and each filter provides over 1 million gallons of safe drinking water and lasts for 5 years. We will cover all costs of buckets and on the ground logistics, and will keep you updated with who we impact.

Please help us create change, maybe by giving up your week of coffee's or donating the cost of a meal out. You can save a precious life by donating $50 ($35 usd) for a filter to provide clean safe drinking water.

Thank you for your love and support of our journey. Together we can be the change. Liz xx
