Israeli-Made Water Purification Vehicle Donated to Philippine Red Cross

A made-in-Israel GalMobile, the world’s first water-purification vehicle, was purchased by the Pass It Forward Foundation and donated to the Independent Philippine Red Cross.

“This achievement underscores G.A.L. Water Technologies’ commitment to cleaning water and saving lives,” said Deputy CEO Sigal Levi.

“What started out as a simple solution with the intent of saving lives is signified as one of the leading solutions for supplying clean and safe drinking water in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.”

GalMobile is a self-contained automatic system on a vehicle to provide treatment, storage and distribution of safe drinking water from any water source at World Health Organization standards in less than 30 minutes. The vehicle produces approximately 8,000 cups of water per hour.

In 2015, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs donated one GalMobile to the Marshall Islands and in 2016 donated another to drought-stricken Papua New Guinea.

In 2017, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended a demo of the GalMobile near the company’s headquarters in Caesarea. Units are being installed in several arid regions of India.
