Quest Water Signs MOU With Water For Women Foundation In South Africa

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quest Water Global, Inc. (OTCBB:QWTR) ("Quest" and or "Quest Water" and or "Company"), an innovative water technology company, and developer of the AQUAtap™ Community Drinking Water Station and WEPS™ Water Extraction and Purification System, announces it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with the Water for Women Foundation ("WFW Foundation") to deliver water purification solutions to rural communities in Southern Africa. The MOU focuses on Quest Water and the WFW Foundation assembling, deploying and operating the Company's AQUAtap™ Community Drinking Water Supply and Distribution Stations in specific geographic locations within South Africa's nine provinces, including the enclave of Lesotho. The intent of our collaboration is to provide pure drinking water to rural communities including approximately 1,300 rural schools that currently lack a natural supply of clean water. 

"We believe that Quest Water's purification and distribution system is an attractive and viable option for Southern Africa," said Ann Heystek, Chairman and Founder of the WFW Foundation in South Africa. "Quest Water's AQUAtap Community Drinking Water Stations are ideal for regions that lack adequate infrastructure to distribute clean drinking water to remote rural areas. We have been working with local government officials and financing sources to identify water technologies that offer safe and economical solutions while employing the best practices in green technology to bring clean water to those most in need."

The mission of the WFW Foundation ( www.WFWFoundation.com ) is to bring awareness to the plight of women and children in rural areas throughout Africa through education and funding initiatives that bring clean water to prevent life threatening water-borne diseases and enable sustainable agriculture.  

"The Water for Women Foundation is the ideal organization for us to partner with. They are committed to finding innovative solutions that purify contaminated water for women and children in rural areas, and have the local and global connections to make their projects happen," said John Balanko, Quest Water Global Co-Founder and CEO. "Our initial objective is to identify and prioritize several rural schools that are most in need and install customized AQUAtap™ Community Drinking Water Stations commencing in 2013."
