Helioz aims to provide an affordable and efficient solar water disinfection tool for low-income households and humanitarian organizations around the globe. More than one third of the population in developing countries does not have access to any clean water supply. According to the UN, 80% of all illnesses/cases of death are caused by waterborne diseases. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhea. It kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Our organization has developed a sustainable point-of-use solution for the lack of safe drinking water to substantially change these facts for the better: reduce waterborne diseases, child/infant mortality and health care expenditures and equally increase social development.
