GlobalMedic | Rainfresh Household Water Purification Units
Rainfresh Household Water Purification Units are point-of-use water filtration systems, designed to provide safe drinking water from virtually any water source. In the aftermath of an emergency, diseases caused by contaminated drinking water pose the greatest threat to affected families. GlobalMedic has partnered with Canadian ceramic filter producer Envirogard to distribute Rainfresh units around the world and provide an innovative, inexpensive, low-tech and environmentally friendly drinking water solution. Rainfresh’s unique ceramic filtration technology traps harmful bacteria and cysts inside the cartridges and safe, clean drinking water passes through, ready to drink. By installing the filters inside food-grade plastic buckets, an easy to use clean water source can be used in a family’s home for up to one year.
GlobalMedic has distributed over 34,000 Rainfresh units worldwide. They have been utilized in responses to typhoons in the Philippines; tsunamis in Japan; cyclones in Vanuatu, flooding in Myanmar and Pakistan; earthquakes in Haiti, Nepal, and Ecuador; droughts in Kenya; and conflicts in the DR Congo, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, and Yemen.
