“These small units are perfect for the small MCH (Mother and child Health) facilities in Somalia. Consume so much less power and the amount of daily production, if used properly is sufficient for small MCH and small hospitals fresh water needs. This is a great project to introduce else where in Somalia. It is very easy to maintain as well. Not complicated. I will say more in my report but I think GIZ should be proud of introducing these machines to Somalia and hopefully to facilities in Somaliland and Puntland in the near future.”

“By the way the foldable solar system for the portable solar desalination system is extremely of high quality. I tested and are exceptionally very efficient! . There is also a good energy meter with the PD unit. Good idea.It records total energy used and status of battery.”

“Good evening Barbara, it’s night over here and I am just getting back from the school. Concerning the water supply, the water is running well. Leo and Wesley are making sure that the water is running everyday and the tank is filled up. Everything is all managed well, concerning the containers, the students bring their own containers to fetch, and now the place is dry, the students are drinking so as the teachers are drinking from the water that has been in stalled. And the community, they come alone with their own containers to fetch water, when water is needed by them. Otherwise everything is under control and have a blessed nights rest if it is also night there, thank you and god bless you and your family.”

“It was a wonderful experience to meet with the community to discuss Moerk Water technology as a solution to the island’s water and plastic problems. It was inspiring to see the community’s interest to be involved in a solution that would not only meet their water needs, but provide resilience and mitigation to salinity intrusion, which small islands like Nusa Lembongan, increasingly face due to over consumption of aquifers and climate change. We are excited for the next phase to begin as we implement our holistic approach of eliminating single use plastic from the island whilst providing a sustainable water source.”.
