As a worldwide water treatment provider, BKG Water Solutions continues its social engagement. In 2011 our support was dedicated to the people suffering from drought and hunger in East Africa. Together with CARE, an experienced worldwide active humanitarian organization, we decided to support the water supply and sanitation improvement in the world’s largest refugee camp, located in Dadaab, Kenya.
The Horn of Africa region is experiencing the most serious food crisis in the
world today. Successive seasons of failed rains, combined with increasing
food prices, underdevelopment, poor governance, conflict and limited
humanitarian access have resulted in food insecurity, water shortages and
acute malnutrition. The Horn of Africa region now received heavy rains that
have led to flooding and an increase in cases of waterborne disease, like
cholera. Over 13.3 million people are in need of urgent assistance.
To support the people in Dadaab and the growing number of new refugees,
BKG Water Solutions joined CARE‘s efforts in constructing and maintaining
systems for water distribution and sanitation in the camp.
“We share with CARE the common goal of global responsibility”, said Jordi Verdés,
Business Director of BKG Water Solutions, “We were delighted to be able to make
a donation to such a worthwhile organisation“.We hope that the donation of BKG
Water Solutions will help CARE to develop and improve the water supply and sani-
tation in Dadaab and make the life of all refugees a little easier.
