Following the  Chiapas Earthquake our Response Team have identified a significant project at the San Cristóbal Public Hospital in Mexico.

The hospital, which treats the poorest families, has 100 beds

Every Year they treat15,000 emergencies cases with 12,000 surgical procedures a year.

The people 'camping' outside in the photograph are patients waiting for treatment, and their families, who have travelled large distances for care.

Water from the town supply is currently unfiltered so is unfit for drinking, and is often contaminated which even makes it unsuitable for cleaning and laundry.

Currently the hospital has to buy twenty five 20 litre containers of drinking water every day for potable use.

Three SkyHydrants are currently on their way to the hospital which should meet all the hospitals water requirement.

These will be installed by our Disaster Aid Response Team working with the local hospital staff.
