Parker Hannifin Corporation has partnered with the Philippines Red Cross to deploy and commission a disaster recovery reverse osmosis water filtration system.

The system was installed Jan. 6, 2014 in one of the worst hit areas near Tacloban City in the Palo, Leyte Province of the Philippines.

Parker representatives provided on-site training to local Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH-WATSAN) Red Cross staff who will maintain the system to accommodate ongoing water needs.

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made land fall on Nov. 8, 2013 as a category five "super typhoon" and displaced 4.1 million people with a death toll surpassing 6,000.

Basic service restoration is still in progress with many outlying areas still without power and water.

The Parker system will serve as a primary source of water production for the Leyte Province, providing up to 20,000 gallons of safe, potable water per day from a fresh water canal.

The water will be distributed regionally with water tanker trucks and approximately 40 strategically located water distribution bladders supplied by the Red Cross.
