THE German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) has setup a water purification system and started the distribution of drinking water fit for more than 30,000 people daily for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda in Santa Fe in Bantayan Island, Cebu.
The water treatment facility, which was completed on November 20, houses a laboratory, which regularly monitors the water produced after the purification process. The laboratory can also analyze samples from water sources in the region to check for potability.
The operations of the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief in the Philippines are funded by the German Federal Foreign Office in response to the recent devastation caused by Typhoon Yolanda.
Officials from the German Embassy Manila comprised of Acting Head of Mission Joern Rohde, Michael Hoffmann, and Honorary Consul of Cebu Franz Seidenschwarz visited the water treatment facility on November 21.
