Water is fundamental to human survival. It also continues to be one of the biggest health threats to more than 660 million people in Africa, Asia and Latin America who still don’t have access to safe drinking water. 80% of disease and death in the global south is water-related. 50% of the hospital beds in these countries are occupied by people suffering from waterborne diseases, such as diarrhea, cholera and typhoid. We at Helioz believe that it is time to put an end to this with a simple solution. The WADI.
The WADI is a solar powered UV-measurement device that serves as an indicator for the process of solar water disinfection. The WADI has been tested by the WHO and meets its guidelines for drinking water quality. It provides households, schools and communities in the global south with one of the most cost-effective ways to enjoy access to safe water for many years to come, using nothing other than WADI and the power of the sun.
ADVANTAGES OF WADI
No maintenance, no spare parts, 2-year warranty.
Reduces costs on healthcare and firewood.
Simultaneously use of many PET-bottles.
Solar-powered - no batteries, no chemicals, no CO2 emissions.
Help to save lifes – with WADI and the power of the sun!
For children safe drinking water is a matter of life and death: everyday, 2,000 children under the age of five die because of waterborne diarrheal diseases. Help prevent diseases like Cholera, Typhus and diarrhea with your donation. It only takes one WADI to secure safe drinking water for a whole family for a minimum of 2 years.Donate to cause
