In a seminar organized by the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, Dr. Khaled AbuZeid, CEDARE Senior Regional Water Program Manager, delivered a presentation on Water Challenges in Egypt and CSR Opportunities. The seminar also hosted a presentation by Proctor & Gamble representative who presented the company’s product “PUR” which is intended to provide a low cost mechanism to purify raw water for use in rural areas where treatment plants and household connections are not yet in place. CEDARE is currently exploring opportunities and potential for using such products in rural areas that are not covered by drinking water services. Link to K.
