Providing Clean Water through the DayOne Waterbag

The DayOne Waterbag has the ability to alleviate one of the most serious problems facing disaster zones – clean water. The Waterbag, a simple, lightweight, easy-to-use solution, could be pre-positioned for vulnerable communities, preventing diseases such as cholera that could easily ravage an already vulnerable community.

International Medical Corps thanks you for your support to provide clean water in emergencies. Both International Medical Corps and DayOne Response continue to move forward with the Waterbag pilot project, expected to be completed in late 2014. With partners such as the Clinton Global Initiative and Procter & Gamble, International Medical Corps and DayOne Response look forward to the progression of our partnership. Please keep track of our water and sanitation efforts throughout the world here.

Microproject Disclaimer

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Providing Clean Water During An Emergency. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
