A team of five, including Mark Hogg, WaterStep Director of Field Operation Kurtis Daniels, engineer Juan Emmanuel Afable, Courier Journal reporter Chris Kenning, and photojournalist Kylene White arrived earlier this week.
In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, thousands are without access to safe water and are in serious danger of waterborne disease. The M-100 Chlorine Generator is a water purifier that is capable of purifying over 10,000 gallons per day and providing safe water to over 1,000 people daily. It only requires table salt and a car battery to operate.
