Fayez al-Hindi has taken it upon himself to create a distillation method that takes undrinkable water into healthy fresh H2O to help save his country!  Residents are literally at risk of running out of water in a mere couple months.

Fayez' system produces 2.6 gallons of water daily, which produces just enough for his families basic drinking and cooking needs.  Many people were concerned if the process was producing safe water, but after an extensive test from the Coastal Municipalities Water Utility, the process is working!  In fact, they applauded his treatment method.

Fayez is now helping others build their own distillation system so they can have access to safe drinking water.
