FedEx Express Assists Water Missions International in Honduras Response
At the request of the First Lady of Honduras, Water Missions sent 10 water purification units to Teguicigalpa in response to recent flooding, with FedEx donating the transportation. Each unit will purify 10,000 gallons of water per day, permanently. FedEx Honduras cleared the freight on October 31 and Water Mission volunteers will immediately install the systems.
Because water purification is a number one need in disaster relief, FedEx works continuously with Water Missions by providing space available shipping on scheduled service. Following the Sichuan province earthquake in China, six units were sent serving 38,000 with clean drinking water. An additional five units were recently sent to Haiti following the fourth hurricane impact this season.
