Providing Clean Water During An Emergency

by International Medical Corps

The Partnership Continues

With DayOne Response, International Medical Corps remains committed to piloting 500 DayOne Waterbags in disaster-prone communities. As announced at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting, the Commitment to Action to address the lack of clean water following natural disasters continues with DayOne Response as we both work to identify funding for the pilot project.


This is where you can help.

  • $10 will provide water purifying packets for 5 familes.
  • $54 will provide one family with one Waterbag and purifier packets. 
  • $500 will provide ten Waterbags for ten families.

International Medical Corps and DayOne response need your support. When a disaster happens, whether it be in Kenya, South Sudan, or Haiti, people need water immediately to survive. Water that has not been purified will oftentimes result in an outbreak of disease.

The Waterbag pilot program could change the way we respond to disasters. The Waterbag could be prepositioned in disaster areas, offering a response to the disaster before it happens. It can easily be trekked to the most remote disaster-hit areas, providing a compact and sustainable solution to a problem that plagues vulnerable populations.
