Clean drinking water

Bringing individually customised water management technologies to remote communities worldwide

29 per cent of the world population has no access to clean and safe drinking water at home. 84 per cent of those people live in rural areas. If there is no access to clean water, communities are forced to drink from water sources that are frequently contaminated with, amongst others, bacteria, herbicides or pesticides. Moreover, people often have to cover impressive distances to fetch water, a task usually assigned to women and young girls. Not only does this consume a lot of their time, it also harms their health because of the heavy load they have to carry on a regular basis as well as preventing them from attending school.

Even when water is available, the quality is often far from safe and drinkable. Nonetheless, since it is the only source available, people are left with no choice other than consuming this water. The health hazards suffered from drinking unclean water include cholera, diarrhoea, under-nutrition and parasites. Nearly 1 out of 5 deaths of children under the age of 5 worldwide is caused by diseases developed after drinking contaminated water.

Since we believe that clean drinking water should be available for everyone, we bring suitable water treatment technologies to remote communities worldwide.
