Our logo, the lotus flower is known to overcome its surroundings and circumstances and have a fascinating will to live, reblooming every morning with a refusal to accept defeat. Our name represents how water has the ability to wash away, cause renewal and growth and to move you from one place to another. Likewise, we believe people have the same resilience, ability to transform, heal and change.
