Innovative Israeli water technology is helping Guatemala in its attempts to recover from Tropical Storm Amanda and combat the Central American country’s growing water deficit.

At a ceremony last week with President Alejandro Giammattei, Guatemala was presented with the Israeli GEN-M water generator, which creates water out of air.

The device can produce 800 liters of water a day and was donated by its creator, Israeli company Watergen. It is transportable and clean, and requires only an energy source to operate.
