In desert regions, solar water plants are required to provide safe drinking water. These plants consist of a bore well and solar panels which allow solar energy to power the motor and pumping of water. In these regions the water is very deep in the soil and therefore hand pumps are not an option.
In a country where 18 million people are in urgent need of water, sanitation and hygiene assistance, access to clean and safe water remains crucial for basic human survival. In response to this crisis, water ultra-filtration plants have been built to purify existing but contaminated water sources. Each plant has the potential to provide up to 60,000 litres of clean water per day to local communities in Yemen, possibly serving up to 50,000 people. The completion cost for these plants is roughly £50,000. To date, four water plants have been completed and are servicing thousands in need.
Our response to the on-going global water crisis is only possible with your support.
