Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease

Think About that. That’s 3 children a minute, 180 an hour or 4,320 a day!

Waterborne diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms which are directly transmitted when contaminated fresh water is consumed. Contaminated fresh water, used in the preparation of food, can be the source of foodborne disease through consumption of the same microorganisms.

According to the World Health Organization, diarrheal disease accounts for an estimated 4.1% of the total daily global burden of disease and is responsible for the deaths of 1.8 million people every year. It was estimated that 88% of that burden is attributable to unsafe water supply, sanitation and hygiene, and is mostly concentrated in children in developing countries.

Waterborne disease can be caused by protozoa, viruses, or bacteria, many of which are intestinal parasites.

At RainCatcher, our rainwater harvesting methods and filtration systems will prevent waterborne diseases and provide clean drinking water solutions to communities around the world!

Just how fast can RainCatcher deliver clean drinking water solutions around the globe – instantly!

Dear Darin,

Warm greetings from Uganda.

I trust you arrived safely.

Thank you so much for the love you have shown us in Uganda by giving us water filter system.

We are enjoying clean and pure water.

From the time the Children’s Home started in 1988 we have been having a problem of Water harvesting and drinking clean water until 23 rd March 11 when we received a water Filter from Darin Olien and Team of RainCatcher Inc. We received the filters by 8am by 10 am after reaching the Children’s home we were all excited and enjoying clean pure water!

This has saved the home a great deal as we no longer have to drink bad water or boil as the children are many in the orphanage. Thus increased good health for the children.

The orphanage has existing structures thatched with Iron sheets but need water harvesting systems for four existing structures as a reliable alternative to the existing unreliable supply.

This home is involved in bringing up orphaned children due to war, poverty and HIV/AIDS in Uganda-Africa and developing them holistically until they are able to support themselves and live meaningful lives. It’s a non profit organization which depends on humanitarian assistance.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
For and on behalf of Komamboga Children’s Home.

World Water Day-Africa Style!

How lucky we are to be in Africa on World Water Day! What an amazing journey it’s been! We have searched deep into the beautiful countries of Kenya and Uganda for the nastiest water we can find. We have found plenty.


We have done dozens of demonstrations for hundreds.  We have seen people nearly come to tears in shock as if they have just found hope for the first time!  The emotional connection when you see that is powerful.  People can’t thank us enough and are so kind hearted and appreciative.  The kids at the schools rush to the car when you arrive.  Hundreds are screaming, chanting, sometimes singing in joy!  “Here come the RainCatchers” they yell.  They sing and dance for us to show their gratitude.  One little boy goes up to Darin and offers him some bananas as a gift for bringing him clean water.

In addition to the filters we are visiting newly installed RainCatcher tanks that were donated by Carl Daikeler and Team Beachbody!  The tanks attach to rain gutters on schools and simply catch the rain that falls from the sky.   Natural and free!  This keeps kids from hiking 5 sometimes 10 miles EACH WAY, just to get a bucket of unhealthy water.  The folks at RainCatcher believe there isn’t a shortage of water given only a shortage of water received.  There’s plenty up above we just have to catch it!

World Water Day 2011

Darin Olien, Jarrod Holbrook, Jack Rose and Verne Alexander of RainCatcherTomorrow is World Water Day and RainCatcher is right in the middle of it. Our team of Darin Olien, Jarrod Holbrook, Jack Rose and Verne Alexander are actually in Uganda and Kenya this week setting up rain water harvesting and storage systems plus providing villages with filters for portable clean water drinking solutions. While the team will be close to Cape Town, their mission is in the field to help those in need.

We also extend our deepest blessings to those in Japan on this day with hopes that we can help provide relief to those people in need in the very near future.
