The UAE Water Aid Foundation, Suqia, under the umbrella of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, has sponsored an innovative project by a team from the Carbon Ambassadors Programme, with support from the United Nations Development Programme, and in cooperation with the Dubai Carbon Centre of Excellence.

The Carbon Ambassadors Programme was launched by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, and aims to provide one of the largest urban areas in Nairobi with clean drinking water. The project includes the innovative and sustainable transformation of a 20 foot converted shipping container into a water purification unit that uses reverse osmosis and can operate solely on solar energy, with a capacity of 800 gallons.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Suqia, said, "Suqia strives to implement the directives of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to enhance the UAE's position in humanitarian development aid, and find sustainable solutions to the issue of water scarcity, using solar energy to purify and desalinate water."

Mohammed Abdulkareem Al Shamsi, Acting Executive Director of Suqia, said, "Suqia cooperates with international organisations, to research the desalination of water by using solar energy and energy storage, to face drought and provide the best quality of water. Suqia works to support and empower the youth across a number of research and development, desalination and purification water projects, using renewable energy." - (Emirates News Agency, WAM) - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395301097763.html
