GlobalMedic is responding to provide affected families with safe, clean drinking water following the eruption of Fuego volcano in Guatemala. 800 Family Emergency Kits will be sent, including 500 P&G Purifier of Water Kits and 300 Rainfresh Household Water Purification Kits. Each kit will provide a family with clean drinking water for up to one year and include essential hygiene items. In all, these kits will support nearly 5,000 people.
The Rapid Response Team will also carry two AquaResponse3 Water Purification Units to provide clean drinking water to communities affected by the eruption. These portable community water systems can support between 2,000 to 3,000 people with safe drinking water each day.
Working with local partners, GlobalMedic’s Rapid Response Team will distribute the Family Emergency Kits and operate the AquaResponse3 Units in communities with the greatest need.
