In April, the Veolia Foundation travelled to a camp located between Erbil and Mosul, with its long-standing partner, the French Red Cross. The aim was to develop water supply expertise in emergency situations. Some 15 volunteers from the Iraqi Red Crescent were trained by a staff member and a volunteer from the Foundation to install, operate and maintain Aquaforce 5,000 type mobile water treatment units.
French Red Cross emergency relief teams were also trained by the Foundation
In Manosque in Southern France, emergency relief team members from the French Red Cross benefited from the Foundation’s expertise. They were trained in early June to operate Aquaforce mobile water treatment units.
