This Christmas, we continue to support Solvatten
As this year's Christmas gift, we will continue to support Solvatten, and their project in supplying clean and hot water to people in northern Uganda. We hope that our gift can give more people a better living situation and a brighter future.
Solvatten® is a Swedish innovation that purifies water by using nothing but solar energy. It opens like a book, and after a few hours in the sun the water is free from waterborne bacterias that would otherwise cause stomach diseases such as dysentery and cholera. Compared to other water purification methods, Solvatten simultaneously heats the water. By combining safe and hot water, beneficiaries can improve both health and hygiene trough a sustainable source of energy.
The ongoing pandemic has even more revealed the importance of having safe and warm water available for people to wash their hands and surfaces to prevent cases of illness.
Solvatten's inventor and founder Petra Wadström was nominated in a Swedish event called Swedish Heroes. We have now learned that she won the category of environmental hero of the year for her work to get Solvatten out into the world!
