Multi-Pure Helping Japan

Our hearts have filled with sorrow after the devastation that has hit Japan recently. We have some wonderful Multi-Pure friends in that beautiful country and we continue to worry for their welfare as they begin to rebuild their lives. Multi-Pure has been sending several hundred water filters to Japan and is thrilled to partner with Multi-Pure Japan in its distribution to the hardest hit areas.

After having already ordered people living within 12 miles of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to evacuate, Japan is now encouraging people who live between 12 and 19 miles away to also leave the area. The newest worry is that the reactor vessel of the No. 3 unit has been damaged, possibly releasing radiation from uranium and plutonium into the atmosphere. Fears of a breach arose after workers at the No. 3 reactor were hospitalized after coming in to contact with water that was 10,000 times as radioactive as normal. The No. 1 and No. 2 reactors may also be leaking radioactive water.

Clean water is one of the most important things to secure after a disaster. Clean water gives life and hope. Multi-Pure’s mission has always been to provide safe drinking water to as many people as possible.
