What We Do


Without water, life would not exist.  It is a prerequisite for all human and economic development.  The water crisis has been addressed before but in today’s ever changing environment access to clean drinking water will continue to be a problem for millions of people.  Every day over 16,000 children under the age of five die from preventable causes.  More than six million children died in 2015 from pneumonia, diarrhea and other diseases.

Pneumonia is the leading cause of death in children worldwide.  It killed one million children under the age of five in 2015.  Pneumonia caused by bacteria can be treated with antibiotics, but only one third of children with pneumonia receive the antibiotics they need.

Diarrhea is the second cause of death in children globally.  It killed 530,000 children under the age of five in 2015.  783 million people in the world lack access to clean drinking water.  Among all water treatment methods, water filters have been shown to be the most effective for reducing diarrhea.

The burden of child pneu­monia and diarrhea mortality continues to be most heavily concentrated in several countries.  Countries with the greatest number of deaths from pneumonia, diarrhea and other diseases are: Angola, Central Africa Republic, Chad, Congo Democratic Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Somalia and Sudan.

The Collins Reynolds Foundation (CRF) is a humanitarian organization that provides:
1. Life-saving antibiotics.
2. Clean drinking water solutions.

We are succeeding in our mission based upon our leadership, tenacity, integrity, accountability and transparency. CRF is capable of working with governments, other non-profits, corporations, the public as well as partners with healthcare, financial, beverage and technology providers to reduce global child mortality.
