HAMON – Water Purification Device

About

A low cost carrier designed for children to hold and purify water in challenging environments

Hamon is a container and water purification device designed to hold, transport and purify water for communities in need. Globally, 1.1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water. Importantly, millions of children spend hours each day travelling to collect unsafe water that often causes sickness and disease. Hamon does not require electric power or high technology. It can be produced at low cost and it is adaptable to different environments, helping to save lives at risk wherever they are.
