Disasters are natural catastrophes that can cause great damage and an extensive loss of life. As much as as we want to prevent disasters, it is an unavoidable calamity. In 2018 itself, there were 366 disaster events just within Asia.* After a disaster strikes, the devastation that it leaves behind is unfathomable. The following are just some of the devastating effects of a disaster.
Economic damage such as loss of capital assets and infrastructure
Water contamination after flooding and Loss of farm for livelihood after disaster
The lack of access to safe drinking water is an issue that is most commonly faced on the ground after a disaster due to water contamination. While there are existing solutions available, they might not be the most user-friendly and suitable option for deployment as such solutions are often bulky, complicated to use and requires electricity for operation.
At Wateroam, we asked ourselves, what can we do to solve the problems faced after disaster.
That is when we realised that there is a need for a safe, simple and swift system that can help you obtain clean water during disaster relief efforts.
We want to empower individuals and organisations participating in disaster relief efforts to have a simple and portable system that will allow them to provide clean water during humanitarian efforts. A water filtration system that does not require electricity, one where simplicity meets efficiency. Thus, we developed the ROAMfilter™ Plus.
The ROAMfilter™ Plus is an easy-to-use, highly portable water filter that provides a large amount of safe drinking water within a short period of time. It is the ideal filter for usage in emergency, disaster relief, and rural developments.
Designed with 3 core design principles in mind; safety, simplicity and swiftness, the ROAMfilter™ Plus is engineered to be the most portable community water filter for disaster relief victims and rural communities.
