Nepal needs our help after the second earthquake’s massive destruction added to the devastation caused by the earthquake on April 25. More than one thousand people have been injured, over 68 people dead, and thousands left without basic life necessities. Access to clean water is needed now more than ever. We currently have a shipment of DayOne Purification Waterbags on it’s way to the World Health Organization Nepal Country Office. The World Health Organization (WHO) is a United Nations health agency providing support, leadership and monitoring of health situations and crises. We are also working in collaboration with UNICEF, an organization that promotes the wellbeing of children in 190 countries and territories including Nepal, as well as the Nepal Department of Water Supply and Sewerage agency, which aims to supply safe water and sanitation to Nepal, to deploy Waterbags to vulnerable populations. Enough to supply clean drinking water to 2,000 people. The Waterbags will provide 300,000 liters of clean water. Our core belief at DayOne Response is that everyone has the right to access clean and reliable drinking water, especially during vulnerable situations, such as the Nepal earthquakes. As of September 2013, the DayOne Waterbag method of use with the P&G Purifier of Water packets was approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency under P&G’s “Pur Purifier of Water” EPA FIFRA registration label. Since then, we have provided 7 million liters of clean drinking water for disaster relief over the past year and was recently highlighted at the Women in the World event as one of Toyota’s Mothers of Invention. Following the aftermath of the disaster there is often a loss of subsistence, a lack of potable water, the displacement of thousands of people, and a heightened risk for epidemics and waterborne diseases. This is where our DayOne Purification Waterbags come into play. There is an urgent need to provide immediate relief and our team is working directly with the local agencies in Nepal to provide training, support, and gain as much feedback as possible on the deployment. Please stay tuned on Twitter and Facebook for our updates and progress.
