Myanmar: Safe drinking water thanks to cooperation between Malteser International and the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) - Drinking

One of the two plants will be installed on the grounds of the hospital in Labutta where it will produce 500 litres of drinking water per hour. The other bigger plant will be set up in the centre of Labutta; it can produce up to 6,000 litres of drinking water per hour. ‘Together with other non-governmental organisations and local authorities, our staff members will also organise a distribution system, so that the drinking water from this plant can be brought to the other emergency shelters and camps in the city’, Ingo Radtke, Secretary General of Malteser International, explains. ‘With the support of the THW, we can provide safe drinking water for more than 10,000 people every day only with the bigger plant.’
