Communal space for water collection

In refugee / IDP camps, aid-agencies typically provide 15-20 liters of water per day per person out of which only 2-3 liters is used for drinking. Providing this quantity of water is expensive and requires a lot of effort. Between 10-20% of this water is wasted due to inefficient usage. This can have a serious health impact.

The team created a simple solution to reduces spillages and recycling waste water while Improving Well being (hygiene, rest, recreation). In this solution a tap and articulation filling arm were designed to be attached to the existing piping system, with a self-opening/closing tap, that requires no contact with hands (potential source of contamination). The original crate used to transport the emergency kit is used as a spillage collector which allows the water to be reused for numerous purposes such as flush latrines and agricultural fields and prevents the formation of a puddle under the taps buy jordans online for cheap. The concept also involves the conversion of water distribution points into communal zones where different water related activities can be carried out such as hygiene, laundry and dishes and a vegetable garden using filtered water.
