MEDRIX is introducing the fourth generation of our safe water development efforts. In the summer/fall of 2018 MEDRIX’s Vietnamese partners installed water treatment systems in rural schools and health clinics in Vietnam. These systems have been funded by MEDRIX donors who feel passionate about providing safe drinking water to children living in rural Vietnam.
These new-generation nano-filtration units meet American standards for drinking water established by the US EPA as well as meeting the protective-level water quality standards of the World Health Organization (WHO). These systems remove >99.99% of bacteria, >99.99% of viruses and >99.99% of parasites. The treatment systems require neither electricity nor chemicals. And, as a bonus, they are aesthetically appealing to users.
