On September 24th, 2016 Scott Mellema, Joe Novitsky and the Voyages of the Merlin team visited St Luke's New Life Center in Flint, and broadcast the event on Facebook Live. We spoke with Sister Carol Weber about the important role St. Luke's plays in the Flint Community, and checked in on the Merlin Water Purifier that the Merlin team installed there in March of 2016 as a direct result of your donor contributions to our GoFundMe campaign. Joe Novitski performed some maintenance on the system to make sure it was functioning at top efficiency, and explained what is happening to the Flint Water that makes it unfit for consumption, and how the Merlin Purifier treats the water to deliver clear, safe drinking water. He also gave a tour of how the installation at St. Luke's allows the one purifier to provide water for all of the center's kitchen functions, from cooking to ice production.
We've captured the live broadcast into a five part video series that is available on our Merlin YouTube site. Please visit our channel and subscribe to see future videos from Merlin as well! Thanks to you, our donors, and to the whole Merlin team, and of course to Sister Carol and her team for making such a big difference at St. Luke's in Flint. We are continuing to identify additional Flint locations to install purifiers, so stay tuned!
