Household Purification Units in Syria

Hdj9smb6vzqcauyfozda

Syria has been at war for over seven years leaving 13.1 million people in need, 6.1 million people internally displaced, and nearly 3 million in hard to reach besieged areas. Currently, 35% of Syrians do not have access to clean drinking water. A rise in malnutrition rates and low vaccination rates have weakened people's immune systems. Overcrowding and poor hygiene conditions in displacement camps have increased the risk of disease outbreaks.

When people have weak immune systems and are living in overcrowded camps with inadequate water and hygiene services, they are extremely susceptible to illnesses contracted by drinking unsafe water. Tragically, within the first two months of 2018, there were 67 verified attacks on Syrian health care facilities, workers and infrastructure, leaving Syrians with less capacity to cope with easily treatable illnesses. 

GlobalMedic is responding by restoring access to safe drinking water at the household level. The distribution of Rainfresh Water Purification Units will allow families to collect water from whatever source they have available — be it a stream or river — and purify it in their very own homes. This response protects the health of families and prevents the contraction of illness by providing safe, clean water for an entire year.
