Zareh Sharan, Afghanistan
Refugees in Afghanistan face many problems, potable water being
chief among them. The average New Yorker uses seventy gallons of water a day.
For survival the typical adult requires a minimum of 2 gallons a day: for
drinking, cooking, and hygiene. A refuge has to procure and carry all the
water they use for both themselves and their families. These four solutions
are presented as a way to help the United Nations with the water issues of
refugees. A Large distribution plant: where all supplies are stored. A Medium
size water station: with both potable and gray water systems, as well as a
covered gathering space. A Small sleeping unit for aid workers: which attaches
to the distribution plant, but can also fit on the back of a truck. And an
X-small hard shell harness for carrying gallon jugs of water long distances.
