PROVIDING WATER PURIFICATION EQUIPMENT TO REFUGEES AND TO DISASTER-HIT AREAS
Potable (drinking) water is the most precious and scarce resource in refugee camps and in hurricane-ravaged areas.
Most refugees receive drinking water from wells or from
Nearby rivers which are both contaminated.
Right after hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, over 1 million residents were without clean drinking water.
The foundation researched the most efficient way to provide a portable water purifying system. It tested dozens of systems and validated that the “Guardian” was the most effective. It was a purifier which is better than a microfilter. A purifier removes viruses from the worst water conditions. Each purifier pump delivers 2.5 liters per minute without chemicals, bulbs or batteries. It is self-cleaning and no disposable filters required. It is rugged and portable. It is also the one approved by the US military.
