Israel’s Watergen Provides Water to Ukrainians Suffering After Dam Destroyed

Watergen, an Israeli company specializing in generating water from the air, is helping the people of Ukraine survive the harshness of the Russian invasion of their country. Specifically, the firm responded in an emergency after a damn in Nova Kakhovka was recently destroyed by Russian forces.

Ukraine Chief Rabbi Moshe Reuven Azman is credited with helping to arrange for the deployment of five of Watergen’s machines in the country. He personally risked his life while working on the transport of machines to the afflicted area while under Russian fire.

The Ukrainian city of Kherson was the benefactor of Watergen’s largesse after the dam was destroyed in June. The Ukranian government said 2,000 homes in Kherson were flooded and that 94% of irrigation systems there were disrupted because of the dam’s destruction.

Established in 2009, Watergen’s technology extracts water from the air by enabling the air to move fast into the patented Genius system in a significantly short time, ensuring greater efficiency and thus using less energy.

You know that icky feeling you get on your skin when it is really humid out. Heat is not so bad, but when it is also humid it feels like it’s many times worse.

That feeling results from the sweat not evaporating off of your skin because of the high level of water vapor in the air. That is humidity and that is why it occurs near large bodies of water. And now Watergen has a use for it.

Now, think about being able to turn that humidity into drinking water – you could kill two birds with one stone. First, you make the air more comfortable and then you provide yourself with drinking water too. This is what Watergen does. And it can do so in the middle of a desert.

With the Watergen tech, if you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, like a desert, with no source of water you just turn on the machine and it will extract water from the air. This tech can also be used in marshy areas with high humidity, but where the water may not be safe to drink.

Even the U.S. military has used the Watergen solution. Its machinery has been used in its military exercises to see how it can be applied during times of national emergency when the everyday services are disrupted.

As for the efforts in Ukraine, Rabbi Moshe Reuven Azman explained, “These special machines, generously donated by kind benefactors, have been operational in the village of Anatevka (a village established for refugees from the war) for a while.”

“Recently, we have been deploying them across multiple cities in Ukraine, including the disaster-stricken Kherson, which faces an acute shortage of drinking water due to the dam’s destruction. This technology is life-saving, and we are committed to distributing it as extensively as possible,” he added.

Rabbi Moshe Reuven Azman, the Chief Rabbi of Ukraine, leads a team of volunteers who oversee extensive humanitarian activities in Ukraine, often at immense risk to their lives. Since the beginning of the war, the organization has evacuated over 40,000 Jews from combat zones, maintained the Jewish village of “Anatevka” which serves as an aid and reception center for refugees, and provided food packages and necessary medical equipment to tens of thousands more.

This is not the first time that Watergen has engaged in such a humanitarian mission. A year ago the company dispatched its technology to Syria to help created drinking water for refugees from that country’s ongoing civil war.
