This month, the Pears Program-IsraAID Pilot Fund is launching the deployment of EZPack's Reverse Osmosis off-grid system in two locations in Colombia. This pilot was made possible with the kind support from the Israeli Embassy in Colombia and the Edmond de Rothchild Foundation.
In collaboration with local partners and the communities, the systems will be established and their quality and impact will be assessed over the course of the coming months. We look forward to seeing the results of the pilot in providing clean and safe drinking water to communities in Colombia.
"In this community, we need clean water many times during the year, because the well dries up and the water comes out dirty and makes children and animals sick, this project would help us a lot here" - Leader of the Jasaishao community in Riohacha (Guajira).
