The Albuquerque Journal recently featured Aqua Research’s devices in use to create disinfectants in response to the recent COVID19 pandemic. Follow link below:
Since the initial cases of COVID-19 were detected in countries across the world, Project Santé began ramping up training efforts to inform key stakeholders across Haiti about proactive ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Over the past three weeks, Project Santé has trained hospital workers, community agents, school directors, pastors, businesses, mothers’ clubs, and youth leaders to help disseminate knowledge across all communities. The Santé team has created information pamphlets, posters, audio messages, and videos that all reinforce the same prevention strategies outlined by the MSPP.
“We are determined to make sure our communities are educated on how to handle this virus. We cannot repeat the mistakes we made with cholera,” stated Jean Claude, a school director in Lascahobas, a town only a few kilometers from the epicenter of the cholera epidemic which resulted in almost 10,000 deaths in Haiti.
While there are few confirmed cases of COVID-19 to date in Haiti, Project Santé has already started producing and distributing their own bleach solution to hospital sites that can sterilize the hospitals, clean hands and purify water for drinking. Using a new technology that has been prepositioned to serve all 10 departments, the project is scaling up production to ensure that when hospitals begin to treat patients with COVID-19, they will be equipped to stop the spread of the virus.
“We are working closely with the MSPP and are supporting our 168 hospitals across the country in their time of need,” reinforced Dr. Eugene, Technical Lead of Disaster and Risk Management at Project Santé.
The Aqua Research STREAM Systems are used by Operation Blessing International, one of the leading non-government organizations, to make chlorine disinfectant to make water safe immediately following a disaster such as the one in Palu, Indonesia.

It was a pleasure for Aqua Research to host Governor Susana Martinez and Economic Development Department Secretary Jon Barela at the Bio Science Center on June 15 for the signing of the New Mexico Angels Tax Credit Extension Bill. Every one of my New Mexico investors told me that the investment tax credit was extra incentive to invest in promising New Mexico start-ups like ours. Not only does it help entrepreneurs with great ideas to develop new technologies and market opportunities, but it also has an early ripple effect into the community. While we only have 5 employees at right now, we also hire a significant number of contractors who help us with specific projects, or local vendors who supply or make parts for our development projects, which allowed us to bring our H2gO Purifier to market more quickly. The H2gO Purifier is an example of the kinds of outstanding products that entrepreneurs in New Mexico are creating with the help of local investors.
Delivering supplies to disaster victims entails compassion, innovation and courage. Moving food and H2gO Purification devices to Nepalese in some of the most remote areas of the country, Operation Blessing VP David Darg and his team had to leave the main truck, most of the supplies and most of the water behind as they forged ahead. Relying on local water sources, relief workers and villages shared water purified using H2gO and the few supplies available when they first reached the village, and all were spared suffering water borne illnesses as they worked to return village life to near normal.
Watch the video:
Our NGO partner, Operation Blessing, has chartered helicopters to get relief supplies in hard to reach villages in the mountains of Nepal. We also just heard there was a major 7.3 aftershock.
Aqua Research is working with Operation Blessing International of Virginia Beach, Virginia to get H2gO Purifiers on the ground in Nepal. Several are already on the scene and more are being shipped as the relief effort gets under way. The following video describes the situation. However, Operation Blessing reports that their people are on the ground now in Nepal.

Your contribution is greatly appreciated to help improve drinking water quality for those in disaster settings or poor economic conditions. However, we are unable to support delivery of these purifiers to specific persons, locations, or countries. We will deliver the purifiers to those in most need where the logistics are favorable to ensure they get to where they are needed to help alleviate suffering. Thanks again for your support!
