In the early 1990’s , the
Quantum Group founders expended significant efforts a purer form
of water called “Micro-water”. The company then marketed this concept thru products such are “Merlin” water and
as the name may suggest is’nt a new discovery. It has been in
nature and has been on mountainous glaciers since time
immemorial. Only 6-8 water molecules cluster together in
“glacier water”. This is much less than the 10-12 water (
H2O) molecules clusters found in lake or sea water, for example.
Thus, since the “glacier water” has very higher penetration
thru the skin pores, it feels very “refreshing and cool”.
Water makes up over 70% of the
human body weight. Thus clean water is the truly a “gift of
life” itself. Yet over one billion world citizens do not have
safe drinking water, and thus cannot healthy life, and some
don’t live at all.
They are the innocent children
and desperate families living in overcrowded urban ghettos, in
refugee encampments, and in towns and villages too numerous to
count in rural areas of developing countries. Here, less
than 50% of the population have access to safe drinking water
and only 25% have access to sanitary systems.
They are unfortunate victims of
drought and ever-changing environmental conditions. When
drought occurs, their countryside is transformed into an arid
wasteland where every living thing seems to cry out for lack of
These precious people do
not have enough water to grow and harvest food, enough water to
keep their livestock alive, enough clean water to protect
themselves and their children from hunger and disease.
Simply put - they do not have
enough water to live.
... can overcome hunger
Worldwide hunger problems are
really water problems.
Without water, crops and
livestock wither and die. People go hungry and become
weak. Weakness allows disease to run its course and
finally the “Quiet Killer” – hunger, takes its toll.
At this moment, many communities
in over 50 countries throughout the world are suffering
needlessly because water is either insufficient or polluted or
may not exist at all.
A sad irony is that many times
there is life saving water just 100 feet away!
Directly underground. So

But with technologies ranging
from simple and inexpensive to state-of-the-art, Global Water is
helping poor communities in developing countries find new
supplies of clean, life-sustaining water.
And when clean, fresh water
begins to flow in a community -- a whole new life begins –
free from the threat of food shortages and a myriad of
health-related problems that are associated with hunger.
That’s the power of water.
... can overcome disease
Daily, almost 40,000 men, women,
and children die from diseases directly related to drinking
Even if there is enough food to
eat, families may still be slowly dying from another form of
hunger called “invisible hunger” and it comes from drinking
Waterborne parasites, received
from drinking contaminated water, multiply continuously in
already weakened bodies -- robbing their hosts of the
nourishment and energy they need to grow and develop normally.
A full 80% of fatal childhood
diseases that kill children and destroy families worldwide are
caused -- not by shortages of food and medicine -- but by
drinking contaminated water.
When you think of fighting
hunger, you may think only of emergency relief efforts bringing
shipments of food.
When you think of healing
disease, you may think only of doctors, nurses and medicine.
But you can actually stop hunger,
heal disease and save many thousands of precious lives with the
simple gift of water.
And long after a humanitarian
relief effort has ended and temporary medical teams have gone --
the gift of water continues to heal.
It is truly a life-saving
... can overcome poverty
Water is the lifeblood of a
community. When water is unsafe to drink, the entire
Sick children lack the energy to
learn and weak young men lack the drive to work hard – and so
In many rural communities, it is
the women and children who are responsible for locating and
transporting water. Fulfilling this daily responsibility
often leaves little or no time for women to pursue developmental
opportunities and for the young to get an education – and so
Nothing can change a community
like providing a source of clean water for the first time.
It creates a complete transformation. It has the power to
actually stop the cycle of poverty. The entire community
becomes healthier. For the first time, children become
eager to learn while young men and women are able to work harder
to produce an income and more food. Everyone can envision
better futures and begin working towards them.
Giving clean water to a poverty
stricken community is like giving a blood transfusion to a dying
man. Water means new potential, new hope for a better
tomorrow, and a new life.
Simply put - Water helps people
The lack of access to safe drinking water is
the primary cause of disease and poverty in the world. Quantum
is advocating the cause by joining several international non-profit, non-sectarian, and non-governmental
humanitarian organizations specifically committed to the
development of safe water supplies and related health programs
that enable people to help themselves in developing countries
around the world. To achieve this goal, the focus is to provide
permanent solutions to a region’s water needs by providing
appropriate equipment (to include state-of-the-art technology)
1) Drill new water wells to allow rural
populations access to safe, clean groundwater; and
Purify, store, and distribute new and existing sources of water
for domestic uses (such as: drinking, cooking, and hygiene), as
well as agricultural purposes.
