SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA, Dec. 2, 2009 -- Atmospheric Water Systems (AWS) Inc. today announced a donation of 102 Dewpointe® atmospheric water generators to Feed The Children. Through the generosity of the Maulhardt Family Trust and in conjunction with AWS, the Dewpointe systems will be distributed internationally to Feed the Children's offices and distribution centers. Feed the Children has six divisions in the United States, each of which will get one or two units for every day use. In addition, Feed the Children plans to use the Dewpointe units primarily in its operations in Honduras, Central America and Africa. Clean drinking water is one of life's necessities, and the donation from AWS aides Feed the Children in meeting its goal of meeting the needs of hungry children worldwide.

Today, over one billion people do not have access to clean drinking water. By 2025, at least three billion people are expected to face severe water stress. The problem is not just a shortage of water, but also the wasteful and unsustainable use of available water supplies. But, nearly 3.1 quadrillion gallons of free water are in the atmosphere every single day. By using dehumidification technology, AWS' Dewpointe extracts this unlimited supply of moisture from the air, providing pure, fresh atmospheric drinking water. Tapping this renewable, sustainable water supply preserves our natural fresh water resources.

Feed The Children is an international Christian non-profit relief organization with headquarters in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Since 1979, Feed the Children has delivered food, medicine, clothing and other necessities to individuals, children and families who lack these essentials due to famine, war, poverty, or natural disaster. With this donation, AWS is assisting the organization in their efforts to adopt sustainable practices.

"We are delighted with the units and the way it works. In our part of the country and where we located the unit in the corporate office, our average humidity and temperature isn't ideal, yet the unit still provides enough fresh, wonderful tasting water for our office," said Rick Trotter, Feed The Children's Procurement Manager. "I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that needs a source of good, clean wonderful tasting water over bottled water any day."

"Water is a key component for life, and Feed the Children's mission is to bring everyday necessities to children and families worldwide. The least we could do is provide them with pure, fresh drinking water at all their facilities," said Stephen Krauss, CEO of Atmospheric Water Systems Inc. "As we enter the season of thanks and giving, we are so happy to demonstrate our support for this amazing organization."
