When conflicts or disasters strike, people flee dangerous situations quickly, leaving most of their possessions behind. They often end up in shelters, camps or settlements where sanitary conditions and access to clean water are inadequate. Markets close and roads, airports and seaports get damaged or compromised, leaving vulnerable people without access to basic necessities to keep themselves healthy. Clean drinking water plays an essential role in keeping families healthy in emergencies when water sources are contaminated.
While most emergency household filters assist families in the short term, Rainfresh Household Water Purification Units provide purified drinking water well beyond the emergency phase of a disaster, and into the recovery and rebuilding phase. These Rainfresh units will provide a point of use solution for families to treat, purify and store clean drinking water. As families work to rebuild their lives, Rainfresh is there to keep them healthy and safe for up to a full year. The unit’s simple design includes two stacked food-grade plastic buckets and three ceramic filters, and it is lightweight and easily portable. The units are easy to assemble and maintain, and extremely cost effective. They can purify water from virtually any source, protecting people’s health during a vulnerable situation. Rainfresh units require no electricity or moving parts.
For $76, you can provide a family with clean drinking water for a year with a Rainfresh Household Water Purification Unit.
