The Canadian company Zenon Environmental teamed up with the Indian water purification company Eureka Forbes, and World Vision, an international relief and development organisation to provide safe drinking water for up to 350,000 tsunami survivors. Zenon donated 54 of its Homespring water filtration units to support relief efforts in India and Sri Lanka.

The units will be installed in relief camps, schools and other community locations to meet critical needs for clean and safe water. Eureka Forbes, which will service and maintain the units, is a marketer of the Aquaguard Water Purifier in India. World Vision is providing expertise in identifying those areas most in need as well as coordinating the logistics of transporting the units on the ground. Units installed in temporary relief camps will be moved to other areas where there is a continued need, such as schools and homes for the aged, and will not be sold commercially.

The Homespring system makes water biologically safe for consumption, without the use of chemicals, by physically removing suspended solids, viruses, parasites and bacteria from the water. For more information, visit www.worldvision.com, www.zenon.com, and www.eurekaforbes.com.
