Water Mission continues safe water work in Ukraine

March 6, 2023
In the last year, the nonprofit has installed 50 emergency safe water systems and mobile water units, and has produced more than 6 million gallons of clean water.

Water Mission, a Christian engineering nonprofit, is continuing its safe water work in Ukraine one year after Russia’s invasion.

“I want to thank all who have come alongside us in the last year, as our shared efforts have impacted more than 100,000 people,” said Water Mission CEO and President George C. Greene IV. “Our dedication to providing safe water access is bringing hope to people living in dire circumstances across Ukraine.”

In February 2022, Water Mission was one of the first organizations to provide access to safe water for internally displaced people within Ukraine. The organization’s work continues to expand emergency safe water access in areas affected by the war, where municipal water and power infrastructure are targeted by deadly missile strikes.

In the last year, Water Mission has produced more than 6 million gallons (23 million liters) of safe water and installed 50 emergency safe water systems and mobile water units. These systems aid vulnerable people in underserved communities that are typically far from urban centers.

WaterMission teams in Ukraine are providing critical on-the-ground engineering expertise, consulting, and water quality testing services to local municipal water operators.

Water Mission has also collaborated with partners to ensure dignified living conditions for people in need by distributing more than 3 million water purification packets and 10,000 hygiene kits. The hygiene kits include items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, toilet paper, and other sanitary items to help people who have lost everything stay healthy.

Water Mission says that it is actively placing more safe water treatment systems and mobile water units in the weeks ahead throughout war-torn southeastern Ukraine.
