George Lewis is an octogenarian who has no plans to slow down. So what’s he doing that keeps him going? He’s changing the world one glass of water at a time. George is better known as the Water Man. He’s using his membership in Rotary to really make a difference in the world. He explains, “6,000 children die every day from water born diseases.” image By leveraging his Rotary Club, his Rotary District and Rotary International’s Rotary Foundation, he’s learned how to turn one dollar into $3.5 of impact for water. Over his lifetime, George reports helping over 1.5 million people gain access to clean water. Please consider whether a friend or colleague might benefit from this piece and, if so, share it.
