A not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, the IX Power Foundation was founded in 2012 to advance innovative technologies and organizations focused on improving the planet.
The Foundation's leading concern is clean water - assisting the promotion of technologies that can turn water contaminated by industry and resource extraction methods and turning it into clean "found" water that can be utilized by people, livestock and agriculture.
Help us send special water cleaning / treatment machines to Bangladesh.
Why Bangladesh? The people of Bangladesh are dying from possibly the worst water on the planet. 20 million poor people there have nothing but deadly arsenic contaminated water to survive on, and 1 in 5 of all Bangladeshis dies from this poison. Some of this water contamination is naturally-occurring, but far too much of it is caused by the factories dumping the chemicals and dyes that is used in manufacturing the textiles and leather that goes on our backs here in wealthy nations like the U.S.
"Bangladesh is grappling with the largest mass poisoning of a population in history. The scale of this environmental disaster is greater than any seen before; it is beyond the accidents at Bhopal, India, in 1984, and Chernobyl, Ukraine, in 1986."
