Diani Childrens Village
Diani Beach - Galu Kinondo, Kenya (some 35 km south of Mombasa)
In many areas in Kenya, access to clean drinking water is lacking. About 88% of the population has to put back long distances to the next water source or is forced to drink contaminated water. Particularly children suffer from water borne diseases. For demonstration of the effectiveness of germ-free drinking water, the official dealer of Trunz Water Systems, Tomash International Ltd, installed its water trailer equipped with a Trunz Water System 200 at disposal to the Diani children’s village.
In order to provide local inhabitants access to clean drinking water, a small Water-Shop has been opened. The local population can buy drinking water for two Kenyan shillings (KES) per litre. This is approx. 1 cent per litre. It is about ten times cheaper than the currently lowest price for water which can be bought in 20 litre-tanks in stores.
Further to this application, Tomash International Ltd is using the mobile system also for tests and demonstrations.
