In communities around the world, people struggle to find reliable access to clean, safe water. That’s changing with the help of Source Global, a company in Mercy Investment Services’ Environmental Solutions Fund. Source Global’s hydropanels use solar power to absorb water vapor from the air, mineralize it for optimal taste, and deliver that clean water directly to a tap or faucet. An installation during the COVID-19 pandemic is delivering clean, safe, off-grid water to a community in the Philippines, combating residents’ constant struggle with illness and dehydration from contaminated water.
