RAINWATER COLLECTION TANK
A rainwater collection tank harvests natural rainwater and directs it into a storage system where it can later be used for drinking, cooking, doing laundry, bathing and irrigating crops. These collection tanks are especially useful in dry climates allowing communities to make the most out of every resource.
CLEAN WATER SPRINGS FORTH NEW LIFE
Water tanks like these, built of sturdy cement, give families peace of mind about where they can access water. At times, FH has built this type of tank at schools or health posts too, taking advantage of the roof structure to construct gutters that guide the water down into the tank. Because the tanks are covered, mosquitos that carry diseases like Zika and malaria can’t breed in the standing water.
