Three New Zealand Red Cross aid workers have returned from the remote Marshall Islands after
responding in mid-May to a severe drought.
During their time on the outer islands of Ailuk, Enerjeral and Ollet, the team used reverse osmosis
desalination units to produce 12,630 litres of water, leaving behind a machine capable of making
another 4000 litres of fresh water a day.
Another Red Cross aid worker remains in the Marshalls, and is due on remote Ailuk Island tomorrow
to restock fuel, check solar panels and oversee on-going water production.
