“Our most recent innovation is DIVVY, an emergency water system designed for use in situations where access to clean and safe drinking water is a critical problem,” said Gary Cruikshank, chief executive officer of Aquamira. “The DIVVY water system is portable and completely human powered providing up to 6,000 gallons of safe drinking water a day. It’s half the price and twice as easy to use as any competitive product on the market and requires no technical training to operate.”
DIVVY was recognized as first runner-up for the most innovative product at the Aid and International Development Forum in Washington, D.C., where it debuted earlier this year. Several DIVVY Systems are currently in use around the world in places like Haiti, Peru, Guatemala and Honduras.
Currently in use at the Rus Rus hospital in Honduras, DIVVY provides the only source of clean drinking water the hospital and local villagers have ever had. In a region where infant mortality and elderly illness is often due to waterborne illness, water provided by the DIVVY system is vital for the health of that community.
