Operation Blessing On The Ground In Tacloban To Provide Safe Drinking Water

Operation Blessing‘s VP of International Operations, David Darg, is on the ground in Tacloban to bring relief to typhoon victims.  In just a matter of days, David will have a number of portable hypochlorite generators and will start distributing clean drinking water to survivors in Tacloban and other affected areas in the Philippines.  Right now, food and water are critical for survivors. Many have now gone days without either as aid workers and military personnel work to reach those trapped in devastated areas.

Six (6) MIOX BPS portable sodium hypochlorite generators and one (1) SANILEC 6 sodium hypochlorite generator have been deployed to the Philippines by Operation Blessing International.  The seven (7) clean water treatment technologies have the combined capacity to treat approximately 500,000 gallons of water each day, providing safe drinking water in life-threatening conditions.

Watch the video below as David explains how the families in the Philippines are struggling to survive in the wake of one of the strongest storms in recorded history.
