In emergency situations, getting safe drinking water to the victims is often one of the main challenges. Like in Nepal this year, where we have already delivered over 3,500 filters, enabling 15,000 people access to safe drinking for at least one year.
However, not only only during the initial relief phase people need access to safe drinking water, but also during the recovery phase. That is why, after the initial relief, we try to work together with local partners to build up a sustainable supply chain for our products. One example of this is in the Philippines where, after the emergency response in 2013 and 2014, we are now working together with several partners to create sustainable access to water filters and spare parts.
