What do you get when you take a group of Israeli companies and entrepreneurs in the field of water technology and mix them with a group of professionals and volunteers from post-disaster-humanitarian-aid organization? It’s too early to say but one thing is for sure - Only good things!
Yesterday we held a closed MeetUp between 10 Israeli companies and startups with water technologies to IsraAID WASH team. The companies heard from people who worked in disaster areas like Vanuatu, Peru, and Dominica about the needs in the field so the companies could better understand what humanitarian aid organizations like IsraAID are looking for.
IsraAID is a non-governmental, humanitarian aid organization that provides lifesaving emergency relief and sustainable solutions for populations affected by natural disasters, epidemics and post-conflict situations. IsraAID provides the vital support needed to move from destruction to reconstruction to sustainable living. Read more about the type of technologies they are looking for in the attached file
