Impact Nations to Deliver and Distribute Water Filters in Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Area
Date:11/20/2013

Vancouver, B.C. (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Since the highest velocity winds ever recorded slammed into the Philippines, the world has been stunned by the extreme devastation caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan. As the death toll continues to mount, dire reports have announced that nearly every water source in the region is contaminated, mounting a most extreme challenge for the population. International relief agency Impact Nations has mobilized to help meet the most immediate and critical need – access to safe drinking water.

On Sunday November 24, a small team from Impact Nations will deploy directly into the area surrounding the hard-hit city of Tacloban. Led by David Pearson, the head of water projects for the organization, the team will distribute water filtration systems and provide sanitation training to on-the-ground local teams throughout the devastated region.

Over the past seven years, Impact Nations has been honored to work alongside local citizens to bring clean water to over 150,000 people in countries such as Nicaragua, Haiti, Uganda, Kenya and the Philippines. Now, using the same Sawyer Point One technology, each water filter unit distributed will provide up to 500 US gallons of water each day, not only in this desperate immediate time, but for years to come.

"In every community where Impact Nations has installed these water filters there has been a dramatic and sustained improvement in people’s health," explains Steve Stewart, founder of Impact Nations. "Even after the typhoon damage is repaired, each filter will continue to provide the people of the Philippines safe, clean water for many years to come."

The cost of installing each filter (with containers for collecting water reserves) is $65. Typically, each filter can give 25 people clean water for their lifetime. In this most extreme situation, over a hundred people can receive immediate relief daily from each filter.
