USUF has donated four Water on Wheels (WOW) Carts to Ukraine to provide urgently-needed relief to communities devastated by war.
These highly portable, award-winning purification systems are manufactured by the Louisville-based NGO WaterStep and designed for disaster response. USUF's donated WOW Carts, which we delivered to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, will serve over 80,000 people a day in Ukraine.
Each cart also comes with WaterSteps' patented BleachMaker™ unit, which can produce up to 1 gallon of bleach an hour using only water, salt, and an electricity source. This bleach will be used for disinfectant and sanitation purposes (e.g., in hospitals, food preparation facilities, and IDP shelters).
It costs $2 a day to provide someone in Ukraine with clean water—or $10 a day to ensure a family of five has sufficient water to drink. Any amount that you donate is important to ensuring that every Ukrainian is granted that essential human right of access to safe water.
