Israel Donates Water Purification Vehicle to Drought-Stricken Papua New Guinea

Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is donating a water purification vehicle to drought-stricken Papua New Guinea, an independent island nation north of Australia in which about 85 percent of the six million citizens lack access to electricity and tap water.

The Foreign Ministry has teamed up with the Caesarea-based G.A.L. Water Technologies to provide water-treatment products on a humanitarian basis to African nations for more than 20 years. They sent a GalMobile water-treatment system to the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean, where drinking water is in short supply.

The GalMobile is a mobile potable water-treatment, storage and distribution system that connects to any possible water source and produces drinking water at World Health Organization standards in less than 30 minutes, yielding approximately 8,000 cups of water per hour.
