The aftermath of hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, wild fires are all instances where Americans were left in dire straits. Some were able to wait for bottled water and supplies to be airlifted to their locations, while others were forced to face yet another crisis – where to get clean water. Natural disasters increase the transmission of many communicable diseases: Water-borne diseases, vector-borne diseases, as well as diarrhea and other gastrointestinal illnesses. Diseases that threatened their lives just as much, if not more so, than the disasters that put them in that situation. Children are most susceptible.
With your help, WWB can ease the suffering brought on by these disasters by being prepared. WWB is working toward developing a mobile purification system for potable water. Our goal is for this system to be contained in a Disaster Relief Trailer (DRT) that will be designed to operate in the most adverse conditions and still have the ability to provide up to 100 gallons per minute of potable water. The trailer will have the ability to arrive just about anywhere in North America within 24 hours. It can be used for any number of emergencies, such as floods, hurricanes, earthquakes – any type of disaster. The DRT can also serve as a contingent auxiliary to water systems that are failing. Within minutes, the DRT can turn the most putrid and contaminated water imaginable into sanitized drinking water. Please help us in making this project come alive! There are so many needs that could be met with this project.
