Water Tank Kit

Following a natural disaster such as an earthquake or cyclone, water supplies are often disrupted and clean water difficult to find. People in these situations often face a high risk of illness and the possibility of contracting water-borne diseases such as cholera and typhoid.

This Water Tank Kit allows MSF’s water and sanitation teams to fill plastic water tanks, known as 'bladders', with water that can be chlorinated and transported to people in need. They are frequently used in cholera emergencies, or when people are displaced.

The pillow-shaped tanks lay flat and are heat resistant and anti-UV treated to withstand sun and high temperatures, while preventing the evaporation and contamination of water. Families use their jerry cans to get water from the tanks. The kit is an innovative, life-saving tool that is fast and easy for MSF emergency teams to install.
