Since the coup in Myanmar in February life has been tough for many of the ethnic groups in the country.
Villages of the Karen people have been under frequent attack by the army.
This has meant that the people have had to leave their homes and retreat to the forest on the border between Myanmar and Thailand.
The SkyHydrants provided through our partner ‘Safe Water for Every Child Myanmar‘ have been moved with the displaced people.
This illustrates a key advantage of the SkyHydrant in areas affected by conflict.
The units can be rapidly relocated and set up quickly to make river water safe to drink.
Safe Water for Every Child Myanmar is using the money donated through Disaster Aid Australia for these two GEM Rapid Response Packs which will be on their way in the next few days.
The units with the smaller GEM SkyHydrant, tank used as the ‘packaging’, and a kit of parts will make it much easier to change location quickly, and set up a temporary system.
