UKRAINE

Wine To Water is working in Ukraine and neighboring countries to distribute water filters to families displaced and under attack in this crisis. So far, over 30,000 filters have been deployed, and 10 wells and reverse osmosis units have been completed. We will continue to support the people of Ukraine amid rebuilding efforts.

Disaster Response Background

Since our inception in 2004, Disaster Response efforts are at the forefront of our work, it’s simply part of our DNA. We get critical resources to people in need, deliver aid in times of crisis, and restore access to water in dire situations. Months, even years after the crisis, WTW can still be distributing filters or rebuilding water systems destroyed by a natural disaster or conflict.

We responded to disasters around the globe including the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Storm Uri in Texas, hurricanes in Florida and the Bahamas, the Syrian Refugee Crisis, the Philippines Super Typhoon, plus WTW helped in the US and abroad during the Covid-19 pandemic just to name a few. 

Join us in supporting life-saving help for people in a disaster.
