GUATEMALA: VOLCANO RESPONSE 2018

GlobalMedic responded to provide affected families with safe, clean drinking water following the eruption of Fuego volcano in Guatemala. 800 Family Emergency Kits were sent, including 500 P&G Purifier of Water Kits and 300 Rainfresh Household Water Purification Kits. Each kit provided a family with clean drinking water for up to one year and included essential hygiene items. In all, these kits will support nearly 5,000 people.

The Rapid Response Team also carried two AquaResponse3 Water Purification Units to provide clean drinking water to communities affected by the eruption. These portable community water systems can support between 2,000 to 3,000 people with safe drinking water each day.

Working with local partners, GlobalMedic’s Rapid Response Team distributed the Family Emergency Kits and operated the AquaResponse3 Units in communities with the greatest need.
