On Jan. 12, 2010, a massive 7.2 magnitude earthquake-ravaged Haiti, claiming up to 316,000 lives and displacing more than 1.5 million people. cW4k responded with clean, safe drinkable water in cans.
Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Japan’s most powerful earthquake since records began, struck its north-east coast, and triggered a massive tsunami back in 2011. Within days, water in vending machines and supermarkets sold out. Tap water for those living near nuclear plants polluted by radiation was deemed harmful for use and consumption. cW4k assisted with clean, safe drinking water in cans. The water was a welcome relief to all, especially orphans and the homeless.
The effects of Hurricane Sandy in New jersey in 2012 were severe, with economic losses to businesses of up to $30 billion.

Three hundred forty-six thousand homes were damaged or destroyed, and 37 people died. CannedWater4kids, Ball Corporation, Alcoa, Fleetmaster Express and Cargo Solution Express Trucking Company joined forces to send over 100,000 cans of premium drinking water to New Jersey.
