Thirst. This is one of the biggest problems facing a community struck by a disaster. Without access to safe and clean drinking water, survivors face dehydration and the possibility of water borne illnesses.
To help meet this critical need, Project Aquarius was launched. EGF was able to source portable water treatment and filtrations units designed by Engr. Ruben Villostas. These units can produce at least 600 liters of water per hour.
Through EGF’s partnership with Amihan Global Strategies (AGSX) and the Tsukuba International Catholic Church in Japan, EGF was able to provide portable water treatment and filtration units to Asgad and Matarinao in Eastern Samar after Typhoon Yolanda, and the municipality of Tubigon in Bohol after the it was struck down by a powerful earthquake.
