Only 39% of the rural population in Vietnam has access to safe water and sanitation and almost 80% of the diseases in the country are caused by polluted water. Vietnam – a country of some 96 million people – has long suffered from a shortage of safe drinking water for its citizens, due to a lack of suitable infrastructure, water pollution, and financial resources.
In 2018, to celebrate 25 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Vietnam, Watergen’s products were displayed at an exhibition at Hanoi’s Ly Thai To Square. Watergen ceremoniously gifted the people of the city with a GEN-350 atmospheric water generator.
80% of the Hanoi’s water supply comes from ammonia-tainted underwater reservoirs, and there is a desperate need for fresh, clean, and unpolluted water.
The transportable GEN-350 can be installed anywhere and can produce up to 800 liters of water per day to assist people in locations where drinkable water is not easily accessible.
